Personal Quote:

I wasn't afraid of anything until I had a kid. Then I was terrified because immediately I could imagine a hundred ways in which I could not protect him. But I also got my subject: what are you afraid of? The subject is always what are you afraid of. I don't begin a novel unless there's something in it that makes me say, 'God, please don't let this happen to me'. See more »

Trivia:

Won an American Book award for "The World According to Garp." See more »
