Likewise, if I wake up in the middle of the night, I typically think about whatever book I'm reading to help me fall back to sleep. While writing Tornadoes, if I didn't immediately know how Cath would respond to a Scott letter, I would think about the characters and the book when I woke up in the middle of the night. If I managed to puzzle through whatever problem I was having with what to write next, I'd jump out of bed to jot down some notes. Also, sometimes I would talk to my daughters about what was happening with the characters. They were roughly the age of Scott and Cath during the writing process, and once and a while they helped me see how a teenage girl might react to whatever Scott had recently written.(less)

It's interesting that people are desperate to see this book as a social or political science piece. To me, it was an interesting story of one guy's experience of going from rural Kentucky and small town Ohio to Yale Law School. It reminded me of a m ...more
