How did you find inspiration for this novel, besides the flaneur aspects of the day-to-day details of the city?
What gave you the idea to use the song, “Everybody Rise” as your title?
When Evelyn slept with Jaime, was that an implied rape?
Why did you decide to conclude the book the way you did?
My favorite part was when Barbra sat on Evelyn’s bed and they dealt with a loose thread on the pillow, and in the end tried to tuck it back in. What gave you the idea for this symbolism?
