Telling the Story: An Interview with A.M. Homes

Jill Choder-Goldman, LCSW

IT WAS ONE OF THOSE MAGICAL SPRING DAYS IN NEW YORK. THE SUN had finally come out after what seemed like a hundred days of rain, the trees were budding, and the outdoor cafés were filled with people smiling and drinking “half-caff lattes.” I sat down with A.M. Homes in one of those cafés. She is an insightful, honest, and intellectually curious writer who writes about the human condition, creating worlds that at times feel both real and unreal. With the music of Nina Simone and Los Lobos blaring and the sound of glasses clinking and clanking in the background, we talked about her creative process, the experience of being adopted, being a mother, and being a prolific writer since the age of 19.

Jill Choder-Goldman: In all of your work that I've read, you write about human behavior and ask the questions, “Who are we?” and “Why we do what we do?”—two very important themes in the world of psychoanalysis as well.
