Chloe Benjamin
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Don't stop believing.

Q. What 3 personal qualities are most important to you?

A. Compassion, genuineness, intelligence.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. My grandmother. She wanted to move to Paris to be a writer, but instead fell in love with my grandfather, a student at Yale Divinity School. Though she became a minister's wife, Grandma refused to lose her eccentricity, her open-minded curiosity, or her love of difference. She doesn't agree with the concept of the Eucharist, keeps a massive painting of a nude woman tussling with a snake in the living room, and embraced my mom completely when Mom began to date another woman.

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. I can't think of anything I feel prouder of or more grateful for than publishing this book with Atria.

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. Bread. That one was easy.
