My favorite part of Fiona Bayrock’s interview of Tracking Trash author Loree Griffin Burns:

The day the first hardcover copies arrived, my kids were more relieved than excited. I had been talking about it for so long that they had started to think my book was simply a ploy for alone time. As in: “My mom’s up in her office … working on her book.” You have to imagine their little hands making air quotation marks around the word “book” to get the full effect.
