“She always wanted to be photographed while reading, because that’s what she loved doing most. She had a huge library of over 400 books. At the time of her death, she was reading Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird and Leo Rosten’s Captain Newman MD, a book based on the life of her psychiatrist. She once met Nikita Khrushchev, and they discussed The Brothers Karamazov. She dreamed of playing the part of Grushenka in a film adaptation of the book.”

Really. So, what are you, then? That’s for you to decide.
