Good To Know

Some fun and fascinating outtakes from our interview with Kurson:

"For about a year after I quit law to pursue a career in writing, I hung drapes and installed window blinds to make a living. It gave me lots of solitary quiet time (other than the sound of my drill) to think about storytelling and story structure and the elements of a good tale well told."

"Some of my other jobs before becoming a writer:

  • Hot dog vendor at Wrigley Field
  • Shoe salesman
  • Flower delivery man
  • Traveling salesman for my dad's motorcycle paints and lubricants business
  • Options trader at the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE)."

    "I was inspired to write, I think, by having two parents who were exceptional storytellers and who both had exquisite sensitivities to the world and the people in it. My mom and dad saw things in situations and in human beings that very few others saw, and they talked about it to their children. Both of them instinctively knew how to tell a fantastic story -- they had built-in, DNA-level instincts for character, drama, tension, and story arc. Listening to them talk about their lives, the people they'd known, and the things they saw in the world was more interesting and moving than any film I could imagine. My dad died several years ago. My mom remains the best storyteller I know in the world. She just gets better and better. She could tell you a story about walking down the hall in her condo and would have you riveted, all without ever trying too hard."

    "Here's a strange fact about me: I cannot read -- books, magazines, or anything else -- while I'm writing my own books or stories. If I do, I start to vaguely sound like the writers I'm reading. So I just go cold turkey on my own reading while I'm writing -- that way (for better or worse) I sound strictly like myself."

    "Here are some things I've loved since boyhood that I can't seem to stop loving as a 44-year-old man:

  • Magic tricks
  • Model rockets
  • Watching small airplanes take off and land at the local airport
  • The Universal Studios classic monsters (Dracula, Frankenstein, Wolfman, et al.)
  • The Beatles
  • Taking batting practice at coin-operated pitching machines
  • Amusement parks."

    Perhaps the single thing I like best in the world is taking long drives along the country's blue highways, those two-lane roads that wind through America. I took many of these drives as a young boy (often for weeks at a time) with my father as I accompanied him on his many business trips, telling stories along the way. The rhythm of the road and the solitary company I find in it speaks to my soul like nothing else. I'm starting to take my own son on these trips and find it to be just about the happiest experience I've ever had in life. Along the way, I think about my writing, and it is during these rides that I often find my best inspiration."
