Commentary on current events
Drew was fresh from her triumph at the New York Historical Society, accepting the $50,000 prize for Death Warmed Over, aka This Republic of Suffering, and feeling receptive to an interview on important current events.
Miss Grimke: So what do you think about the cardigans?
DGF: What cardigans?
Miss Grimke: Michelle's cardigans.
DGF: What about her cardigans?
Miss Grimke: Don't you think she's over-doing them?
DGF: Is it possible to over-do cardigans?
Miss Grimke: I certainly think so. The election night cardigan was edgy. The sparkly cardigan for meeting the Browns was acceptable if not brilliant. But a cardigan to meet the Queen? And that crazy cardigan she wore to the concert! Good grief! Enough is enough!
DGF: Cardigans travel really well.
Miss Grimke: What do you know about cardigans?
DGF: I went through a cardigan period.
Miss Grimke: I just bet you did.
