August 27: Ira Levin’s A Kiss Before Dying | Daily Literary Quotes @ Literary Cobblestones

Hello Cobblers!

Today in literary history we celebrate the birth of genius author Ira Levin with a quote from his novel A Kiss Before Dying.

I could not believe there wasn’t a Paris Review interview with Ira Levin, or if there was I couldn’t find it. BUT I did find this cool little spotlight video for Levin: “Profile: Ira Levin (feat. authors Chuck Palahniuk, Chelsea Cain).” I chose it primarily because the epic line that Palahniuk delivers regarding Levin: “Ira Levin makes the fact that we’re going to die okay. That’s one of the things that horror novels in general do.” Amazing.

 

Cobble on.
