Pseudonymous Bosch

Lovely piece in the New York Times Book Review by children’s book author Pseudonymous Bosch. Both funny and serious. Here’s a bit from the funny part:

Pseudonymous Bosch makes a big fuss about hiding from his readers as well as from his enemies. He variously claims to be holing up in the jungle or living in an igloo in Greenland. Nonetheless, my daring double manages to make himself accessible via email, and sometimes even ventures out into public with his signature sunglasses and the occasional fake beard. What’s his favorite book? “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” of course. Does he have any pets? Yes, his rabbit secretary, Quiche. He’s the one typing this letter. Whereas I might feel uncomfortable responding, Bosch always has answers at the ready.
