Sue Grafton’s Two Reasons You Shouldn’t Commit Murder
submit to reddit

Sue Grafton, author of the Kinsey Millhone mystery series ("A" Is for Alibi, "B" Is for Burglar, etc), explained that when she was going through a nasty divorce with her second husband she fantasized about murdering him. 

She never went through with it though because, well, it was improper.

"In Kentucky, where I was born you're taught two things," Grafton told George. "Never call attention to yourself and never make anyone else uncomfortable. If you murder someone you have already violated both of those premises."

In the interview Grafton also talked about some of the fictional killings she's contemplated, how she's slowly morphing into her Millhone character, and that delicious Canadian foodstuff — poutine. 

"I've heard about that!" she said. "Talk about a murder method."

Sue Grafton's interview with George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight airs Tuesday, November 19 at 7 and 11:30 p.m. on CBC.
