Dinner with a Difference. 6 Literary Greats Around the Table

Seat Guru

Great idea by the Dailypost. You get to plan a dinner party for 4-8 of your favorite writers/artists/musicians/other notable figures, whether dead or alive. Who do you seat next to whom in order to inspire the most fun evening? I would go with six authors around the table

1. Oscar Wilde- He would be great for a clever quip and wouldn’t be short of humour.

2. Brendan Behan- A marvelous story teller with a roguish sense of devilment. Would need to keep the whiskey away from him. Could cause a few arguments around the table.

3. J.D Salinger- could get an insight into the author behind ‘Catcher in the Rye’. Would also have a few war stories to entertain.

4. Shaun Tan- If things were going poorly at the table, he could give us a symbolic illustration of the evenings happenings.

5. Phillip Pullman- Would have strong opinions on the Church and would like to hear him debate with the other guests.

6. Roald Dahl- He could tell us one of his legendary quirky poems. He possessed a wicked imagination and could swap war stories with Salinger. Would be interesting to see was he as dark a man as people say he was in contradiction to his light children stories.
