My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Don't be too embarrassing.

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. Starting right fielder, Boston Red Sox.

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. I'm not sure if we're talking fictional or real here, but I'll go for an obvious one: Abraham Lincoln. I'd say, "Mr. President, it's an honor." Then, I'd invite him over for cake, or pie, or whatever we had, whatever he wanted. The larder is open to the 16th president.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. This is like asking a parent to choose their favorite child. I just can't. My personal history is strewn with massive errors in judgment. They're all precious to me.

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. All the other people who have found themselves wishing to be at Cafe Schwarzenberg on Thursday afternoon in November.
