Zadie Smith Hearts Jon Snow

You guys might know I’ve become a bit of a Game of Thrones fan boy. Can you believe that season 5 finale? Holy crap!

Anyway, while doing a little research on White Teeth author, Zadie Smith, I found this little nugget—which made me laugh, especially if you know my opinion on Virginia Woolf.

Smith recently wrote a short story called Escape from New York, so The New Yorker asked her which three people she’d take on a road trip with her.

She picked four. Her answer:

I’m going to squeeze one extra into the back seat and go with a mixture of real and fiction, comedy and wisdom, friendship and eye candy: Zora Neale Hurston — she’s driving — Louis C.K., Virginia Woolf, Jon Snow.

That’s right: Jon Snow. Never mind he’s fictional. Do you think she mean Kit Harington, or Kit Harington acting as Jon Snow?

Whatever the case, I love the idea of Virginia Woolf on a road trip with Louis C.K. and Jon Snow.

I’m trying to imagine the usually stoic Jon Snow chilling in the back seat with Louis C.K. What type of hijinks would those crazy kids get into?

    No I can’t believe how it ended. I read the books but for some reason hoped D&D would let him live.
    I heart Jon Snow too 😀

  8. Thinking about the question “who would you take on a road trip” made me laugh. I had never thought of it but my choices immediately came to mind: William Faulkner, Scott Fitzgerald, and Ernest Hemingway passing around a bottle Jon Stewart bought. Nothing like John Stewart to deflate an ego and put some fun in the car, now is there? Throw in Dorothy Parker for a really good time and that would be one hell of a trip. I can imagine Dorothy turning to Faulkner and saying, “I don’t know who your typist is but you have to get a new one. She is putting in way too many words.”
