I'm deeply honored by the award.... Intimate Lives is a book that I thought about writing for twenty years and finally persuaded an editor to let me write.
My editor, Elisabeth Kallick Dyssegaard, played a crucial role in creating a book that fulfilled the challenging title. I also appreciate the role of my publisher, HarperCollins, in producing such a handsome book, with a striking cover that visually summed up the text.
