Column | Sep 25, 2014 | 9:02 AMWalking across Western Avenue on a muggy September afternoon, Gillian Flynn stepped through the rutted pavement of a construction zone and explained with patience and precision how she would murder me one day. Granted, I had asked. Say you needed to kill me, I proposed, how would you do it? Hammer? Rope? A chain saw to the back? Immediately, I regretted asking, and not because she had an unnervingly ready response. The question was gauche: In polite conversation, one does not ask a magician to perform a magic trick or a comedian to tell a joke, and one does not ask the hottest crime and mystery writer in the nation, particularly one with a knack for bottomless wells of unease and characters harboring corrosive tempers, to plot your death. It's tacky. Thankfully, Flynn is not a polite conversationalist, and she doesn't blink at tacky.
