Interviews with J. Courtney Sullivan and Jonathan Tropper

I have recently read a few interviews with authors that I like a lot, and thought I’d share them here.

First is an interview with Jonathan Tropper from The Forward. In it, he reveals that he is recently divorced from his wife, the status of the various screenplay adaptations of his novels, and the roots of his interest in writing. I am 1/3 through his latest novel – One Last Thing Before I Go, which I am listening to on audio.

Second is a New York Times interview with J. Courtney Sullivan, author of Maine (reviewed here). She reveals what’s on her nightstand, her greatest influences, and her definition of the perfect novel.


Happy Second Anniversary

Tomorrow, August 4, marks the second anniversary of the day I launched this blog.  This has been an exciting year – four online book clubs, author interviews with Josh Henkin, Min Jin Lee, Lionel Shriver, Dani Shapiro, Kelly Corrigan and hopefully soon with Dalia Sofer, and, best of all, dialogue and interaction with EDIWTB readers. It’s been a lot of fun, and I am looking forward to much more!

In honor of EDIWTB’s second anniversary, I’d love to hear from you. Please comment and tell me about any books that you have enjoyed that you learned about here on this blog. I’m always curious to know which books resonate with readers.
