An interview with Susan Piver about serendipity

P.S. William Boyd coined the term zemblanity to mean somewhat the opposite of serendipity: "making unhappy, unlucky and expected discoveries occurring by design". A zemblanity is, effectively, an "unpleasant unsurprise." [Wikipedia]

Wonderful story about serendipity...and the fact that poets can produce fine work even if they're happy. :-)
