Commentary

"The funny thing is that I did always think that, if it ever did get published, it was a book for obsessives.... And I did think if people liked it they would probably like it obsessively.... but I thought that it would be an obsessive few – I never guessed it would be an obsessive many, as has happened."
-- J.K. Rowling, interviewed by Stephen Fry, 8 July 2000
