>Gone Girl: What people are talking about when they’re not talking about Fifty Shades of Grey. Author Gillian Flynn reflects:

ARE YOU SURPRISED BY YOUR BOOK’S POPULARITY?

Well, I’d buy it! But you can’t know.

ANY THEORIES ABOUT WHAT STRIKES A CHORD?

It’s not quite a mystery, not quite a straightforward psychological novel. I think people like a he-said, she-said marriage story. We’re nosy—there’s nothing we like to speculate about more than other people’s marriages.

WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE IN THE LEAD ROLES?

I can’t address that. I’d get phone calls! When I was writing it, I pictured a very attractive blond couple—when they walk into a room, pow.

MIGHT REESE WITHERSPOON STAR AS WELL AS PRODUCE?

I don’t know. But I’m a huge fan.
