Suzette Mayr Chats about Big Gay Crushes, Celebrity Idols and Good Luck Charms

In a teen-magazine-themed interview with We Who Are About to Die, Suzette Mayr confesses that she keeps a condom as a good luck charm and that she'd like to gay-marry Eric Northman from True Blood – that is, if she wasn't already gay-married to her wife.

Mayr's latest novel, Monoceros, is available from Coach House:

Who is your role model and why? Mary Shelley. Because she could turn a hangover into a masterpiece.

Do you have a good luck charm? My lucky condom.

Wackiest fan encounter: Some guy once said to me that my first book was against god, but that he liked the book anyway.

Before I die, I want to: Play squash with god and like it anyway.

My coolest article of clothing: My pink underwear that has 'This is what a feminist looks like' printed across the ass.

If you could interview any celeb who would it be and why? The drag queen who threw the first punch at the Stonewall riots.

If you could be granted 3 wishes, they’d be… I wish I could be a normal kid. I wish I could be a normal kid. I wish I could be a normal kid.

If you could gay-marry anyone in the world, he/she would be… My wife just said 'You’re already gay-married! Jesus Christ, don’t insult me!' (But if I could gay-marry someone besides my wife I would gay-marry Eric Northman. Oh yes.)

What’s the last thing that made you cry? My gay wedding.
