I’m in the Trib!

I was featured in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review this Sunday.  For those interested, you can read my interview here.  The photograph is of me sitting in the local Argentinian coffee shop where I wrote the first draft of Peter Nimble back when I was in graduate school.

I’ve recently had a lot of readers/teachers/parents write me to ask about biblical allusions in Peter Nimble.  Among them was my Trib interviewer, Rege Behe, who couldn’t help but notice the similarities between baby Peter in his floating basket and baby Moses in the reeds.  That led to a pretty fun conversation about biblical tropes in literature (which are ubiquitous).

    The link seems to not be working anymore? Anywhere else I can find this article? I’m leading a book club on Monday and we just finished Peter Nimble, and very much enjoyed it! Thanks!

  • Thanks for the note–the link should work now. Good luck with book club!
