Earlier this summer, John Prendergast, the editor of The Pennsylvania Gazette, wrote to say that he'd read Dangerous Neighbors and that he looked forward to having a conversation. We had that conversation on a sunny day sitting on a row of skinny benches while a tennis match played out before us. I was my breathless, enthused, and sleep-starved self (as you'll read) and John was the thoughtful man he is. Several weeks later, the photographer Chris Crisman and his team met me at Memorial Hall and put up with me long enough to take my picture.
It is a generous story, accompanied by one of my favorite scenes from the book. It will always be cherished. And Chris, thanks for pulling your camera lens back. You know what that means to me.
