Interview / Entrevue

The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier. My teacher recommended it to me. I’d never read a book with so much swearing, such explicit articulations of what goes on in an adolescent boy’s head. It was thrilling.

“My grandfather’s grave turned into the light, and the dew on his weedy little mortality patch was glorious.” – Marilynne Robinson, Gilead

Clean desk. I have to organize my surroundings in order to organize my thoughts.

What crucial life lesson have I forgotten to teach my children?

To write a line that makes someone cry.
