Since 1993, "Vanity Fair" magazine has featured the celebrated Proust Questionnaire, in which a different noteworthy person each month answers the same series of probing personal questions. The questionnaire originated as a nineteenth-century parlour game popularised among friends of Marcel Proust, the French novelist, who believed that an individual's answers reveal his or her true nature. "Vanity Fair's Proust Questionnaire" brings together the responses of 100 of the most vibrant personalities of our time, from Bette Midler and Lauren Bacall to Salman Rushdie and Norman Mailer, from Martin Scorsese and Shirley MacLaine to Aretha Franklin and Eric Clapton. Hilarious, candid and endlessly fascinating, this is a must-have collection for all connoisseurs of popular culture.show more
