I have been interviewing creative people for 40 years, but I am not a journalist. I have no training in the journalistic standards for doing an interview, and I like it that way, because I think it allows for a more natural conversation. But, even my minimal objective distance went missing when I spoke with Ariel Levy.

She is a staff writer for the New Yorker, and the author of two books, the most recent being The Rules Do Not Apply, a memoir of a trying time in her life, when she lost “a son, a spouse, and a house.”

She is instantly warm and forthcoming as a subject, and appealing as a person, and I suspect that if she ever interviewed me, my darkest secrets would be yielded up at once. In fact, some of that happened.
