Eliot Schrefer on tea-drinking, using the word ‘savory’ and touching the beyond. Enjoy!
Who and what would you bring with you for the zombie apocalypse?
A lawyer. Because I’d be likely to be the doofus that knocked over a vial somewhere and started it all.
If you could spend a week in any book world, which would it be?
I’ve always wanted to have tea with the Schlegel sisters from E.M. Forster’s Howards End. Sit in a tidy townhouse for many rainy London afternoons and discuss life and the world and how to touch the beyond.
What is the best word (in any language) and why?
Savory—because it is so deliciously gross when attached to a noun that isn’t food.
Who are you most excited to see at YALLFest?
Readers. The YALLFest ones are so very passionate.
What is your favorite flavor of pie?
Steak and Mushroom. I know. Savory.
