I don’t read a ton of fiction, but Tom Wolfe’s death got me to pick up ‘The Bonfire of the Vanities.’ I’m a slow reader, but wow – I ended up devouring it in about six days. I’m fascinated with that period, the ’80s, when the country was turning around but it seemed like New York and other cities were just hopelessly lost.

Pippa Middleton

I remember the noise of the bells ringing at school as the effigy of Guy Fawkes we’d prepared earlier was carried out on a canvas stretcher, hoisted on to the huge bonfire and set alight. Then the revelry would begin. My school friends and I would all have sparklers we passed around, lighting one from another.

Peter Capaldi

Peter Capaldi

I destroyed all my geek stuff because I didn’t want to be a geek, and I regret it to this day. Consumed in the geek bonfire of the vanities was a collection of autographs and letters from Peter Cushing, Spike Milligan and Frankie Howerd, the first Doctor Whos, actual astronauts, and many more.

Nancy Gibbs

The 1950s felt so safe and smug, the ’60s so raw and raucous, the revolutions stacked one on top of another, in race relations, gender roles, generational conflict, the clash of church and state – so many values and vanities tossed on the bonfire, and no one had a concordance to explain why it was all happening at once.

Miles Teller

Krysten Ritter

Krysten Ritter

When I’m breaking in a character like Jessica Jones, I have this amazing opportunity to create her backstory. It’s all of the work that happens before I’m ever on camera… Writing ‘Bonfire’ was like doing all of that fun stuff; it was like 300 pages of prep work.

Krysten Ritter

Krysten Ritter

‘Bonfire’ was kicking around for a very long time. It was an idea I wanted to explore for a television show. Then I was given this weird gift of time when ‘Jessica Jones’ finished season one.

The fact is that the British Museum had a complete specimen of a dodo in their collection up until the 18th century – it was actually mummified, skin and all – but in a fit of space-saving zeal, they actually cut off the head and they cut off the feet and they burned the rest in a bonfire.
