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.
