I enjoy your NPR commentaries but did not realize just how many books you had written until I came across the unofficial Web page. I notice that some of your works mention Hoboken. As a longtime resident of the Mile Square City, I was curious if you ever lived in Hoboken, or visited there, or just liked the name. Also I’d be interested to know if some of your stories take place there.

P.S. I love the ratatouille recipe

Wait a second! You mean Hoboken is a real place? It's not made-up, like Oz? There's a real Erie Lackawanna, a real Clam Broth House, a real Washington Street? Wow. I'm all excited.
