Sharp Objects is set to debut as a TV series on HBO, and it recently appeared on The New York Times's best-seller list, twelve years after its initial publication.

That’s quite the vindication for author Gillian Flynn, who was told — when publishers rejected Sharp Objects — that people don’t want to read about imperfect women.

Flynn discussed her inspiration and motivation for creating Sharp Objects protagonist Camille Preaker, and her flawed counterparts in subsequent (best-selling) novels, on Morning Edition.
