Ann Patchett and Her Aversion To Technology

Interesting article about Ann Patchett in The Washington Post over the weekend about how she can't deal with cell phones and technology and always creates settings in her books where her characters are isolated and don't have access to phones. (Bel Canto, State of Wonder). Patchett hasn't watched TV since junior high school, hates going on her book tours, uses an old flip phone that doesn't text, and is married with no kids. In related news, my audiobook of State of Wonder arrived today – yippee!
