Winner of the National Book Critics’ Circle Award, Lethem (b. 1964) covers a wide range of subjects, from what it means to incorporate genre into literature, to the impact of the death of his mother on his life and work, to his being a permanent “sophomore on leave” from Bennington College, as well as his flight from Brooklyn to California and its lasting effect on his fiction. Lethem also reveals the many literary and pop culture influences that have informed his writing life. Readers will find Lethem as charming and generous and intelligent as his work.

His thoughts on science fiction, intellectual property, literary realism, genre, movies, and rock ’n’ roll are articulated with elán throughout the collection, as are his comments on his own development as a craftsman.

Neil Gaiman (b. 1960) currently reigns in the literary world as one of the most critically decorated and popular authors of the last fifty years. Perhaps best known as the writer of the Harvey, Eisner, and World Fantasy-award-winning DC/Vertigo series, The Sandman, Gaiman quickly became equally renowned in literary circles for works such as Neverwhere, Coraline, American Gods, as well as the Newbery and Carnegie Medal-winning The Graveyard Book. For adults, for children, for the comics reader to the viewer of the BBC's Doctor Who, Gaiman's writing has crossed the borders of virtually all media and every language, making him a celebrity on a worldwide scale. The interviews presented here span the length of his career, beginning with his first formal interview by the BBC at the age of seven and ending with a new, unpublished interview held in 2017. They cover topics as wide and varied as a young Gaiman's thoughts on Scientology and managing anger, learning the comics trade from Alan Moore, and being on the clock virtually 24/7. What emerges is a complicated picture of a man who seems fully assembled from the start of his career, but only came to feel comfortable in his own skin and voice far later in life. The man who brought Morpheus from the folds of his imagination into the world shares his dreams and aspirations from different points in his life, including informing readers where he plans to take them next.

Floppy Lop-Ears is different from all of the other kids. He dresses differently. He acts differently. Other kids tease him because he is different. Mommy and Daddy Lop-Ears take him to visit a special doctor who doesnt give shots! Dr. Coon explains that Floppy has autism spectrum disorder, and he is not like the other kids because his brain works differently. Dr. Coon explains some of the difficulties that those on the spectrum have in everyday situations, such as struggling with conversations and acting in ways that others consider weird. He also emphasizes the many positive aspects of having such a unique brain. Floppy is glad to be special, until he realizes that the other kids still tease him for being different. Suddenly, he decides that he must do whatever he can to get off the spectrum. This is the story of a young bunny who knows that he is not like everyone else and tries to make himself better in ways that only the pure innocence and vivid imagination of a young bunny (or child) can create. During his journey, he discovers that sometimes being different is the only way to really find acceptance. The Parents Pages provide additional information about ASD from the authors truly unique perspective.
