Diana Spechler, Interview #71

Name: Diana Spechler

Where you live: New York City

What you do as a vocation or avocation? I'm a writer. My debut novel is called Who By Fire. Your two favorite books: It depends on the day! Right now I'm a big fan of Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates and Mystery Ride by Robert Boswell.

Your two favorite songs: Abandoned Love by Bob Dylan and Brokedown Palace by The Grateful Dead

Why you are interested in spirituality? I'm interested in people. People's religious and spiritual decisions are so character-revealing!

Your favorite quote: "It is a night when kings in golden suits ride elephants over the mountains." It's the last line of a John Cheever story called The Country Husband.

Your favorite website:

Your hero? I'm not sure I have a hero. I'm accepting applications.

A spiritual lesson you hope to learn? I'd like to learn more about finding balance in life.

A place in the world where you feel spiritually "connected?" Sometimes in Jerusalem, sometimes not.
