Hi, Bette,

All of the mother's anguish came from personal experience. Nearly every evil the father, Julian, does to the children and to Roz was taken from my own personal experience with my own father, who is, needless to say, a psychopath. No one ever believed me, so I decided to write a novel about it. Now when people ask and I tell them that this novel was based on my youth, they still don't believe me!

Best,
David(less)

“This is the pain that will inform all other pains from now on. You have lost your mother. That is the primal pain, what we call it in German. There will never be another pain like this pain. You cannot ready yourself for it because it is unimaginable.”
