The last interview-

"And your impression of Flannery when you first met her?" "Well, I was partly prepared for it, because I had seen a couple of photographs of her. And I knew how old she was(27). She was very easy to get along with, had a kind of a soft way of speaking. But at the same time, she could be very funny about things, very quickly."

"To my amazement, Flannery had a rather low opinion of Ireland. She called Blarney Castle "Baloney Castle." That was worthy of "Finnegans Wake."
