Marybeth Mcgreen asked Alice Hoffman:

I think your genius is that you return adults to the magical time when they first experienced entering a wholly different world in the reading of a book. Your books are like fairy tales for adults. And I wonder if you are like Jonas in The Giver, seeing red in a world that is gray to most? Do you think writers see things differently?

Alice Hoffman The Giver is one of my favorite books!! It's brilliant.
I have always loved folk tales and fairy tales. They resonate for children and adults so I'm honored to hear my books read like fairy tales for adults!
I think I more imagine the world than see it!
