Interview with Andre LeMagne

What are your five favorite books, and why?
I like books that seduce me, that draw me into the worlds that they create, and then challenge me to re-think my own. Among my favorites:

The Honourable Schoolboy, by John Le Carre
The Little Sister, by Raymond Chandler
Monsignor Quixote, by Graham Greene
The Bravo, by James Fenimore Cooper
Nostromo, by Joseph Conrad
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I play some jazz on the guitar, or some Bach on the viola, or I compose a string quartet, take photographs, or rant about politics.
What is your writing process?
I set a certain objective, a theme I want to address, or a plot twist that I think can capture the imagination of the reader. Then I write a skeletal version of the story and tinker with it until I am satisfied that it is paced properly, and that the overarching idea works. Then I go back and color it in -- I add the descriptive passages, the sights, the sounds, tactile impressions, tastes and smells. And I linger on the sex scenes. allow myself to feel them, participate in them, and I write the feelings that I experience.
Describe your desk
My desk is an armchair with a laptop.
What are you working on next?
I am working on a novella, a story of murder and intrigue in Venice, Italy. There is a cast of characters of various nationalities inluding Italian, German, Czech and Romanian. There are policemen, aristocrats, financiers, spies, and an artist. The book has five sections, each written from the point of view of a different major character. There is a lot of sex in the story; the characters have varying preferences, ranging from sweet and tender vanilla sex to some pretty hard-core BDSM.
