Once we settle in a booth, I bring up the astonishment that is Jasmine, the pretentious, self-deluded woman whose marriage to a Mado-type gure leaves her emotionally and - nancially wrecked. She’s a character who, as David Letterman put it, “[has you] by the throat for 90 minutes.” I tell her that I have written about more than a few Jasmines over the years. “We all know that person,” she says, “where there’s a ssure between the very thin mask and the person beneath it, and therein lies the person whom you could actually get to know.” Pause. “If they let you.” Another pause. “Or if they suered a breakdown and actually needed you.” She laughs. “But Jasmine isn’t to-the-manor-born. She’s utterly constructed. She’s invented the way she speaks, the way she moves. It’s all smoke and mirrors. People have been saying to me, ‘Oh, we don’t necessarily like her, but maybe we understand her. And I think there’s a veiled compliment there, which is wonderful. But I think, aren’t we all deluded? Surely we don’t all think that we are who we say we are?” I let out a startled laugh. - “Are we? I’m not!”
