Nathan Englander

Every book better be fully intimate, it better be all you have. I’m obviously not shy because I’m going to talk your ear off today, but I’m private, which is different. But the idea for me to be truly intimate — for me to be naked and raw — the fiction allows me to do what I need to do emotionally. And with this book, certain stories were looking at things — it was a change for me to look at things that were right there. And in a sense, this was normality — this game — and I just took a step back and said, ‘My god, we’re pathological.’
