    One thought on “Lunch With”

    1. In the sixties, Jan Wong worked as columnist at the Globe and Mail where she had a column titled “Lunch with Jan Wong”. Wong was a feared interviewer at the time, known to be snobbish, ready to pick up on any failure or habit of her guest, and ready to deliver her judgements from the exalted notion she was better than anyone at doing the job of interviewer. This is a compilation of her favourite interviews from that time period. Wong describes the story behind each column, what she had to do [...]

    2. Jan Wong appears to have a sadistic streak. For a long time she capitalized on interviewing celebrities over lunch and finding ways to embarrass them. I purchased the book because I was interested in some of the people she interviewed, but I didn't learn a single thing I was interested in or wanted to know. The celebrities probably accepted her invitation knowing they would end up with egg on their face but believing that any publicity is good publicity. In my opinion, they didn't do themselves [...]

    3. Jan Wong is one of my favorite authors. She is caustic and would be one of the scarier people to do an interview with. This book is about her various interviews with different celebrities. My favorite is the one she does with Don Cherry because the tone of the interview is the opposite of his TV personality.

    4. Semi-interesting interviews with many famous people by Jan Wong, who seems more petty and malicious than I had hoped. Instead, read Red China Blues, her novel about China. Dec 07
