I love to decorate with books. Scattered throughout my writer's cottage, I have books in the bathroom, the living room, the kitchen - just about everywhere! One of my favorites is a beautiful copy of The Proust Questionnaire that I found browsing at the flea market. I love the way the gold embossing shimmers against the cover's merlot. And I love the Questionnaire.
Beyond being a great party game, I find The Proust Questionnaire to be a useful writer's tool for characterization ... how would your characters respond to it?

Try it and let me know if helps you get to know your characters better - I'd love to hear!
