You won Seventeen’s short-story contest as a youngster. Were you a big magazine reader?
Oh, not that big, I’m sure. But some. I grew up with Life magazine on the coffee table, Life cereal on the breakfast table, and the game of Life on the card table. People were just so happy to be alive, I guess.

Author; 2005 winner of the PEN/Malamud Award for short fiction
