Andrew Levkoff grew up on Long Island, New York, got a BA in English from Stanford, then put that hard-earned degree to dubious use in the family packaging business. After a decade of trying to convince himself to think 'inside' the box (lots of them), he fled to Vermont where he attempted to regain his sanity by chopping wood and

Money of course! Wait, I thought the question was, "What's the one thing you miss about being a writer?"

I won't kid you, writing is hard. Many days I feel like a boxer who's just too tired to get back in the ring. But every now and then there come these transcendental moments when the characters speak to me, or a plot knot unravels with elegant simplicity, or a thousand perfect words appear on the screen as fast as I can type them. My favorite "best thing" is feeling I ought to stop for a bite of lunch only to find it's 5:30PM. I write for those moments. (less)

Hello Again!

Thrilled to hear Paolo Baciagalupi tomorrow night at ASU. He'll tell us why Phoenix will be a waterless wasteland 100 yrs from now. Maybe. Well, that's my prognosis, anyway. If you love speculative fiction, The Windup Girl is one of the best I've read in the last…oh, twenty years. His new book, The Water Knife, is about water wars in the American Southwest. A real page-turner, or finger-swiper,... Read more of this blog post »

“Why can’t I remember that not once have I ever seen a coin, whether grimy copper or bright gold, that had but one side.”
Andrew Levkoff, A Mixture of Madness

“There is no such thing as unrequited love; the phrase ought to be stricken from the lexicon. Love is a thing shared, an intertwining of essential separateness into something not quite alone. There is nothing like it under the heavens. Like bread, it will not be made with flour or water alone; the recipe requires both. Guarding each other’s vulnerability provides the yeast that makes it rise, and salt from the tears that caring brings lends the finishing touch.”
Andrew Levkoff, The Other Alexander

“He wore the memory of her embrace like armor, and though he knew it would not save his life, it would be all that was left to him to ease his passage into whatever lay beyond.”
Andrew Levkoff, A Mixture of Madness

“The difference between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter. ’tis the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning.”
Mark Twain, The Wit and Wisdom of Mark Twain

“Live each day as if it were your last, for one day, you're sure to be right.”
Kenneth G. Ross

“Alone with my wine and my misery, I was convinced that life was composed of a string of “if only’s” leading from one self-inflicted bungle to the next until at some point, one’s final iteration of the excuse became one’s final utterance, and one expired.”
Andrew Levkoff, The Other Alexander

“One has to be at least as ancient as I am now to see that if you try to make sense of life, if you look for patterns and meaning, not only are you bound to be disappointed, you are likely to waste a good deal of precious time.”
Andrew Levkoff, A Mixture of Madness

“One can get past just about anything, given enough time, even when one shouldn’t.”
Andrew Levkoff, A Mixture of Madness
