Meet the Writers
Rick Moody, a child of the 1970s and the privileged middle class of the Northeast, has become a specialist in dissecting both in his novels and short stories, which tend to focus on the troubled state of the nuclear family. In our interview, Moody explains that, while he does enjoy meeting his fans at readings, he tries not to let it ruin their experience of his work. "I really like it when readers come up with their own far-fetched interpretations of things," he explains.
