Interview ran a great Sloane Crosley Q&A, in which the author of How Did You Get This Number (out in paperback May 3) discusses her new life as a full-time writer and the surprising benefits of going on book tour. Oh, and why she won’t move to Canada.
Interview: Are there any cities that stick out from your book tours?
Sloane: Oh, yeah. Book tours are such a little tapas meal of where I could live. I was surprised by how much I loved Portland. It is so wonderfully creative without being artsy. Great food scene. I am starting to like LA, but the concept of a place you have to get used to so much seems a little weird to me. I have been to many foreign cities where I didn’t have do acclimatize as much as I did to LA. But Austin seems great. Apparently the problem is I have never been there in August. Oh, and San Francisco. But I think San Francisco I know so well that I am comfortable with the relationship that I have with it. I would move internationally more quickly, I think.
