Book Notes: Westport Novelist: “I Find Westport Amusing”

Westport novelist Jane Green, in an interview published in the Chicago Sun-Times today about her latest work “To Have and To Hold” (Broadway Books, $21.95), was asked whether she resembled a character in her book who is a little less-perfect wife than she appears.

“‘I do basically live in Stepford,’ she says, describing her home in Westport, Conn.,” the newspaper said.

“And when I ask if she likes it there, she throws back her head and laughs.

“‘I find it amusing,’ she says, smiling like there might be a very interesting book there after all.”

Added the interviewer,“I can’t wait until she finds the time to write it.”

Area to Feel Remnants of Hurricane Charley

The remnants of Hurricane Charley are expected to continue moving up the East Coast late tonight and early Sunday, prompting the National Weather Service (NWS) to issue a flood watch for most of Connecticut and a tropical storm warning for the area.

Heavy rainfall of between 3 inches and 5 inches would produce flooding on some rivers and streams, the weather service said. Winds of between 35 miles an hour and 50 miles an hour also are expected in southern Connecticut.

The flood watch is expected to extend from tonight to Sunday evening.

The Connecticut Light & Power Co., which serves more than 1.1 million customers in 149 towns and cities including Westport, said additional line crews, electricians and tree contractors will be ready within 30 minutes to respond to emergencies.
