Read an Excerpt

Brandon Tartikoff: I imagine that you are constantly called upon to attest whether or not all the gothic happenings, bizarre sexual encounters, and horrific incidents described in your novels,are derived from your personal experience. How do you reconcile the autobiographical element in your writing with your personal definition of a novelist?

Kozinski: I never wrote my books as autobiographical; I never claimed them to be anything but novels. Why I wrote them in a manner that perhaps suggests autobiographical elements stems from my basic notion of who a novelist is. I write because I feel that a novelist has a lot in common with others, not because he differs from them.
