New JKR interview with XLSemanal
Spanish publication XLSemanal conducted a special interview with JK Rowling a few months ago, although it has only now emerged online. We now have a (translated) preview of the article, in which Jo discusses Minister for Magic, Cornelius Fudge, likening him to English Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain:
“My model of the world after Voldemort’s return was, directly, the government of Neville Chamberlain in Great Britain during the Second World War, when he tried to minimize the menace of the Nazi regime for political convenience.”
The author talks also about her personal life and relationships, saying of her husband, Dr Neil Murray:
“What I most adore about him is that, everyday, Neil knows more people that want to know if he can help them, without having to ask who he is married to.”
More excerpts (in Spanish) can be viewed courtesy of HarryLatino. The article will be published in its entirety in this week's edition of XLSemanal.
