Author E.L. James has mostly stayed out of the public eye, but she appeared on Tuesday’s “Today Show” to talk about her stunning, out-of-nowhere literary success.
“This is my midlife crisis, writ large,” explains James. “All my fantasies out there.”
Asked if there’s anything “revolutionary” about “Fifty Shades of Grey,” James laughs and says, “Absolutely not.”
She describes being “obsessed” with writing the material for two years but “stunned” by its enormous popularity.
As for the appeal of the dominant-submissive sexual relationship outlined in the pages of “Grey,” James says, “Once you’re in charge of your job, your house, your children, getting the food on the table, doing all of this, all of the time… it’d be nice for someone else to be in charge for a bit maybe.”
