I think all parents have a double life.
I'm a person who always wanted to turn my life into an archive. Social media made my dream come true.
My siblings and I had this theory that my parents were spies.
Sibling relationships figure in a lot of my books. You don't often see relationships between adult siblings explored in fiction.
The way I express ideas is through the plot, Suspense is an important part of expressing an idea.
I have another aspect of my career where I'm a scholar of Yiddish and Hebrew literature, and I'll say that when you study Yiddish literature, you know a whole lot about forgotten writers. Most of the books on my shelves were literally saved from the garbage. I am sort of very aware of what it means to be a forgotten artist in that sense.
