What a lot of fun. I love Telluride. I loved meeting Maribeth Clemente. She was the ski instructor of some friends’ children. They invited my son to join the instruction — lucky son, then lucky me. Maribeth and I discovered we were both writers. Over the summer she read Dear Money and interviewed me for her show. Great questions and lovely insight. A bonus: she’s helping arrange my return to Telluride, to The Wilkinson Public Library next March.

As always great insights and refreshingly honest. Details times three and your story is unique only to your experienced POV. Free oneself of the distractive accolades of podium ceremony that fog true passion to move others through a chosen art form. You have a wonderful way of conveying the intricacies and anatomy of a fine writers process. If the New Yorker had a radio show I see their literary Terry Gross.
Thank you, Grant. And Maribeth was flattered. Her questions made me think. I’m glad you heard that.
