“The writing was challenging on that book because Caroll has a rather non-linear style of storytelling. It makes for great dinner conversation, but can be hard to form into chapters. But working with him was a pleasure. We’d meet every week at his favorite Italian restaurant, have some wine and risotto and he’d share his life with me, these incredible stories.”
