We sat down with Violet Chambers to get her thoughts on the book, its title, and her best friend Abby.
Have you read ‘The End of Violet and Abby’ yet?
No, haven’t gotten to it yet. Been crazy busy you know. Although I’m not a fan of the title. In fact, let me state for the record that there’s nothing wrong with me and Abby. We’re besties and we always will be. You make it sound like we’re a couple of old lesbians getting divorced.
But your relationship has changed recently. You don’t spend as much time together as you used to.
Abby’s just going through a phase, trying to become Ms. independent feminist superhero or something. It’s cute.
Sound like you don’t approve.
It’s fine. Sure, she’s been hanging around those dweebs on the quiz team a lot lately, but it’s whatever. I’ve been going through some stuff lately so I’m glad she’s found something to take up her time. Eventually she’ll come back to me.
You mentioned going through some issues. Anything you’d like to share?
Well I recently—hey, hold on—I see what you did there. Nice try pal. Guess you’ll have to wait for the movie.
Speaking of which, if ‘Violet and Abby’ became a movie who should play you?
Jessica Brown Findlay from Downtown Abbey, for sure. She’s really pretty.
Do you have anything you’d like to tell all the V+A fans out there?
Check out our book! I haven’t read it yet, or know anything about it really, but I’m in it, so it’s bound to be awesome.
