  1. I think you mentioned being similar to your grandmother and using her name, but I don’t remember if hers was “Clarissa” or your real name.



  2. I only just now realised that your real first name isn’t Clarissa. I never even questioned why a Ukrainian woman would have an English name.

    I am not a smart man.


  3. I remember you saying that you honoured your grandmother (or another female relative?) with your blog name, so that rules that out. Was it the character from the novel?
