Some questions I am frequently asked about the novel:

Is this based on a true story?

Are you a lawyer? 

How did you get the idea to write about choking/death/grief in such a humorous yet touching way? 

Is Tudor City a real neighborhood?

Does this restaurant exist?

This book has so much humor in a subtle way, even regarding grief and how it takes its own sweet time-- were you aware of the humor as you were writing?

The musical references are so specific, so entwined with the plot and voice--are you a musician?

Regarding the debates surrounding tonality and musical temperament -- Did this synergism happen naturally - or did you weave it into your plot consciously?

Do you find humor in your other work?

Luther is relatable, sweet, but he just can't move on -- How did you get the idea for him?
