1) Who are you and where are you?
Alex(andra) Donald, Dublin, Ireland.
2) What do you do for work?
I am a writer, blogger (http://alexdonald.wordpress.com/) and DJ. Will also type for rent money!
3) What do you do for fun?
Read, go to gigs, movies and exhibitions, discover new restaurants, drink wine in dimly lit bars with my friends, make fantasy shopping lists of designer clothes when I'm bored.
4) Tell me something about your bookshelves.
I have moved 18 times in my life and for the last year have been living with my sister. This shelf represents the books I have bought in that period of time. The rest of my library (close to 1,000 books) is in storage in my Dad's house. It is one of my life's ambitions to one day have my own house so I will be able to have all my books in the same place! Bliss!
5) Tell me something about ONE of the books on your shelf.
The four volumes of the Paris Review Interviews on the left hand side of the photo always move house with me. These books are a masterclass for a writer and a constant source of inspiration and motivation for me.
