Issue 10 Interviews

Check out our interviews with these exciting authors:

By the time Beverly Donofrio had reached her fifties, she thought she had seen it all. She had already lived two lives, first as a scrappy young mother on the streets of the East Village and later as the bestselling author of memoirs, including Riding in Cars with Boys, which had been translated into sixteen languages and made into a popular motion picture. Now, she was living in a vibrant, picturesque Mexican town, in a home she had built herself, where she practiced yoga, drank margaritas on her terrace, danced salsa. Still, the religious practices that had nourished her for several years had faded and she felt lost. She missed God. Then, one night, she woke to find a serial rapist holding a knife in her bed. So begins Astonished: A Story of Healing and Finding Grace (Viking), an astonishing memoir that charts Donofrio’s journey–through denial, mourning, and anger to acceptance and peace. She retreats to five very different monasteries, questioning, often humorously, herself, her life, her faith., As Publishers Weekly writes in its review, ” . . . the simple act of asking questions proved a salve, as she depicts in this insightful, candidly unfolding, soul-bearing journey to grace.”

Beverly Donofrio was interviewed by Nicholas Garnett, nonfiction editor.
