'Amazing Grace' is not a book of interviews or onetime snapshots. It's a memoir of a journey that took me into a place I had never been and took over two years of my life. I don't think the people in this book would have said the things to me that they did if they perceived me as a reporter.

I always do my interviews face to face.
You know, there's that temptation in interviews to make yourself sound - well, to give yourself a bit of mystery.
