Zoë Heller: from columnist to novelist

In The Independent, Christina Patterson talks to Zoë Heller about her transition from newspaper columnist to bestselling novelist.
"Nobody talks any more about that Victorian sense of the edifying purpose of literature, but I think it does exist, and it is precisely that, to broaden our moral imagination. A trend in modern popular fiction is big-heartedness on the part of the author, and I think it's fair to say I think there is a heart somewhere about my person, but it's not necessarily on my sleeve."
