She took a full year and a half off. She read obsessively: The Road by Cormac McCarthy ("Terrifying!"); The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov; David Copperfield by Charles Dickens ("Such a page-turner! And I avoided Dickens all these years!"); Tête-à-Tête, a "very interesting" biography of French intellectuals Simone de Beauvoir and Jean-Paul Sartre; and The Possibility of an Island, a novel by Michel Houellebecq about a dystopian future ruled by nightmarish technology. It’s safe to say the Apple money hasn’t made her any more at ease with digital culture.
