What 5 people living or dead would you want to have dinner with?

Buster Keaton, Patrick Wolf, Owen Pallett, Franz Kafka, Frida Kahlo. I'll stick with the famous, as I would like to dine with most of my friends anyway. The list could change at any moment. In fact, it's probably changing this very moment...

Ask me anything


  1. The Queen of Sheba, Cleopatra, Elinor of Aquitaine, Joan of Arc and Judy Dench.
    I can't imagine what they'd all talk to me about but it'd be the best bitch fight in all history to get the best seat...

  2. George Orwell, E. B. White, George Eliot, Mohandas K. Gandhi, Eleanor Roosevelt - looks like an intersection of literature, politics and feminism.

  3. H. Alan Smith,Molly Ivins,Jim Hightower, Willie Nelson,and me..that's all we'd need..

  4. Mary of Nazareth; Joan of Arc; Gertrude Bell; Frances Newton; Salah ad-Din Yusif ibn Ayyub (the real Saladin and not the Christian version); Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi; Lieutenant Colonel Thomas Edward Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia); and Faisal bin al-Hussein bin Ali al-Hashemi, King of Greater Syria (1920) and King of Iraq (1921-33). It would be an epic meeting.

    P.S. I invited more than five people to my house for tea out of necessity.
