Love this writer tidbit from Lucas Kavner’s Huffington Post interview of Tim Kreider, whose excellent New York Times piece called “The Busy Trap” went crazy viral last week:

Whether he’s examining a complicated, frustrating relationship with a former teacher, the euphoria that comes after a disaster or the ambivalence that accompanies the death of a troubled friend, [Tim] Kreider doesn’t take the organized route in the book. It’s never: “Here’s something that happened, and here’s what I learned from it.” Instead, he embraces the messiness of his thoughts and feelings, crumples up timelines and throws big things into the air.
