Marisha Pessl: Not the Brightest Cultural Bulb?

From The Onion A.V. Club:

MP: I never knew who Nick Drake was until the Garden State soundtrack, and then I got his greatest hits, and I really like it. It’s really restful and thoughtful, something so pure about his sound. It’s good for when you’re walking around New York listening to your iPod—nice to listen to instead of all the craziness happening around you. I don’t know anything about him, though.

The A.V. Club: He was a reclusive, depressive guy who died very young from a drug overdose.

MP: Really? You’re kidding. He sounds so put-together.
