For the launch of Places I Stopped on the Way Home, Laura and I sat down in-coversation-style to discuss the book and how it came to be. We talked about the two years we wrote to one another without ever actually meeting, how our friendship has changed in the time since, and just exactly how our books came to be. We--I think we would both say--we have both been radically shaped by the words we shared and the encouragement the other offered. My book exists because of Laura. And it was one hell of an honor to have her be the person to ask me questions about it. She asked about the famous-guy and who he might be, the roommate I no longer speak to, and how I feel about New York now. If you fancy a listen, you can listen to the first even recorded at Stanfords Bookshop in Covent Garden.
