My favorite author is Banana Yoshimoto, and after reading "Kitchen," I decided I wanted to write a novel that made me feel the same way "Kitchen" did, the result of which is my novel, "Bliss, Bliss, Bliss." My latest novel, "Iggy Gorgess," is about a 22 year-old punk male writer living in Greenwich Village, NYC in the 1980's.

I am a "Twilight Zone" fanatic -- 1960's, 1980's and 1990's -- any version of the show will do. If I could go back in time, I'd choose that rainy evening on Lake Geneva, Summer of 1816, when Lord Byron challenged his guests to write their own horror story, resulting in his most famous guest, Mary Shelley, writing "Frankenstein."

My other obsessions are the ocean, mermaids, and to

I prefer to remember my dad the way he looked as a young man. The way he looked in the pictures I saw of him taken in the 1950's and 1960's. Not when I knew him when he had that wild, curly, 1970's hair that used to reach the roof of his car even though he was only 5'10." In the 1980's, he lost that 70's hair. Not because of the cancer treatments he started in 1981 (oddly enough, he never los... Read more of this blog post »

“We sat on the floor eating donuts, completely dazed and hung over. I looked up at the window every so often to gaze at the Christmas lights. They were so beautiful. They blinked on and off in what should have been the early night dark but was really the early morning dark.”

“Oh, I don’t buy lottery tickets... because if I won, and I was capable of that kind of odd luck, then I would also be equally capable of extremely bad luck, like getting struck by lightning, or falling out of window or something. I’d rather just not know.”

“I first became aware of death when my father held me up to see the view from the top of the Empire State Building. I thought that if he moved me just one foot over, I would die. But I trusted him to hold me tight. I wouldn’t fall over, and he would place me down safely.”

“When I was a child, adults would tell me not to make things up, warning me of what would happen if I did. As far as I can tell so far, it seems to involve lots of foreign travel and not having to get up too early in the morning.”
