In Trivial Pursuit of Rowling

halfblood.jpg“The only British television interview with JK Rowling on the launch of the sixth Harry Potter book” has gone to Owen Jones, 14 — whom the Guardian, somewhat redundantly, calls “a completely inexperienced interviewer.”

But, then again, every author who’s learned — to his heart’s dismay — that his interviewer has never read him, will have to envy Rowling’s selection process:

Owen beat three other contestants who like him spent months rereading every word of the first five books [...] and scouring the internet for Harry Potter arcana. “I was nervous when I realised just how good all the other contestants were,” he said. “Some of the questions were really hard. I feel ecstatic to have won. It’s brilliant.”
