The IFB Interview With the Manolo

Manolo says, there is the short interview with the Manolo at the website of the Independent Fashion Bloggers. Here is the excerpt:

What are you working on now?

The Manolo has just finished his new novel, which is with his literary agent and should be finding the publisher shortly. Otherwise, the Manolo does what he always does: awakens late, drinks the tiny little cups of the strong coffee, looks at the interwebs for the few minutes, and then posts something that he hopes will amuse his internet friends. After that, he goes for the lengthy stroll, boutonnière in lapel, walking stick in hand. In the late afternoon, he will meet with his usual friends at the usual places, where they will drink the kir royales and talk about the various things. That is what the Manolo is working on at the moment, attempting to live the sort of life that would have made Epicurus proud.

But, now you must go read the whole thing.

    Novel? There’s going to be a novel? Be still, my heart. A novel by the very man who pointed me toward Winter’s Tale and the Sienkiewicz trilogy will definitely find a home in my modest library.

    Recently learned that philosopher got a bad rep from his colleagues, other ancient Greek thinkers, who were jealous of him. He wasn’t really into the wining, dining, womanizing at all. He was into the ultimate luxuries: freedom, love, peace. He rocks.

      The Manolo is the Epicurean in the original sense. He seeks to live the life of admirable friendship, good conversation, wholesome food, and freedom from the unreasonable demands of the world.
