“I’m getting a divorce,” Duffy snaps. Profuse, mortified apologies are met with a more forgiving response: “You’re the first journalist I’ve told. You can tell everyone I’m very happy. My daughter and I — we’re doing good.”

And for those of you interested in Duffy’s preferred authors, they are as follows: Somerset Maugham, Tennessee Williams, Francine Prose, and David Sedaris. Fifty Shades of Grey is “not [his] thing.”
