New York City, NY -- August 31, 2007

Reading Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix, by J.K. Rowling.

Books he recommends--Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen and Notes from the Underground, by Fyodor Dostoevsky.

About Harry—so complex, not a straightforward story. Towards the end of the last book there are many twists and turns. He’s reading all of the books from the beginning again.

His favorite character is Snake (oops--correction--Snape...still need to read these)--it's his complexity. He cares about Harry because he loves his mother.

His own book? He’s not a writer.

Favorite book—when he was younger it was The Phantom Tollbooth, by Norton Juster. It had a lot of emphasis on what’s right and wrong in the world, perspective on what he should be doing. The character was a lot like him. It’s what got him started reading other books, like all of the Roald Dahl books, Huck Finn

What’s wonderful about the city? The craziness.
