Indeed, I am repeatedly astonished by the number of really good writers who understand human beings so well on paper but don’t know how to deal with them in real life.
Even the two novels I’ve written were based on true stories. It’s how I’m wired – real life is fascinating and fantastical enough. The kind of journalism I did unpeeled lids from cans otherwise sealed.

It’s not like I walk around being Superman in real life. But when you read the script and put yourself in the position that Superman is in – I mean, he’s always saving the planet, for God’s sake.

I get a lot of e-mail messages from people who say thanks for giving them a place to vent, an outlet to say what they can’t say in real life with friends and work colleagues – things that they know are wrong, but they still want to say.

We live in this era where we really enjoy being offended, although only on the Internet. I don’t know how beneficial it is. I wonder if we live in an age where we don’t have power, yet somehow feel we have virtual power. But I feel like it’s a distraction from real life.
People always ask me, ‘I don’t know how you could watch that, how that affects you,’ and I just tell them, ‘I went through it in real life, so it’s like pilots watching a ‘Top Gun’ movie or cyclists watching a bicycle movie,’ something like that.
