Stephen White

1 - What's your latest?

Stephen White: THE LAST LIE. It will be released on August 17. For the record, it’s not a golf book. Not that kind of "lie."

2 - Assuming I haven't read it, why should I?

Stephen White: The obvious reasons – it's great, etc. – but also to discover the many reasons why neither Kobe Bryant nor lawyer wizards will be enamored of it.

3 - What can you tell us about your main character that you hadn't realized until you answered the question?

Stephen White: Alan Gregory seems to have dropped his moral compass on a rock. It no longer finds true north. Close, but . . .

4 - What's your favorite scene and why?

Stephen White: The one with the laundry chute, the dumbwaiter, and the MagLite. Writing it was like the chase-scene equivalent of building a ship inside a bottle. But I also like the scene with the purple chicken. No particular reason other than that it amused me.

5 - What's next?

Stephen White: I have no idea. You would think after two decades of doing this, I would plan a little better.
