J.K. Rowling interview

Amy Iggulden gives us the scoop (in the Telegraph) on an exclusive interview with J.K. Rowling featured in this month's Tatler magazine.

In the interview, J.K. Rowling talks about her mother's death ('"I know I was writing Harry Potter at the moment my mother died,' she says. 'I had never told her about [him]'") and about the price of fame ('"I had lived under a rock for such a long time and suddenly someone had lifted it off and was shining a torch on to me. I was petrified and didn't know how to handle it.'")
