curiosity makes good stories
"I have big curiosity about most things. I've kept notebooks since the age of eight after reading what is still my favorite book, Harriet-the-Spy. My first entry: Roland has a hole in his pants right there. Harriet prompted me to become a journalist and write a slew of books. The most recent, Other People's Dirt, was translated into many languages and is now an e-book. Recently I launched "Unhitched" - a column about divorce - at the New York Times where I regularly write Vows."
