The location was purely strategic. I grew up in a D.C. suburb, and wanted to draw in a vague way from my own experiences of growing up in an east coast suburban area, but the trip to D.C. for the spelling bee needed to be special, so I had to put Eliza somewhere further flung. The Philly suburbs seemed a good fit, and I had a friend who grew up there so I was able to draw on her experience a little when I needed to make sure I had the details right.(less)

Russell Hoban rediscovered

Okay, "rediscovered" is a misnomer because I've been a rabid fan since I first read Riddley Walker over twenty years ago, and my esteem only expanded when I discovered the guy's genius for kids' books. I'm not talking about Bread and Jam for Frances et al, though those are perfectly nice -- I'm talking How Tom Beat Captain Najork and His Hired Sportsmen, which is among my top five of best illus...

“She has often felt that her outsides were too dull for her insides, that deep within her there was something better than what everyone else could see.”
Myla Goldberg, Bee Season

“As much as I admire and value intellectualism and experimentation, I've discovered that unless a book has a throbbing heart as well as a sexy brain, I feel like the story is a specimen in a sealed glass jar and not a living, breathing creature I want to take by the hand and talk to for hours on end.”

“Miriam realizes she is a broken vessel, pieces of her scattered everywhere. She has been finding those pieces, in their many forms, and bringing them together so she can be whole again.”
