Taylor Plimpton Wants to Help You Make Good Choices

“On one hand I understand, to hear about your son or any kid destroying himself out at night is not something a mom wants to read about. But it’s a fact of life, in your late teens and early twenties, that’s just what people do: they go out. But I wanted to give people the tools to recognize the nonsense and look past it toward the things that do matter.”

   — Paper Cub Tayor Plimpton, who once called his memoir Notes From the Night “the kind of book moms don’t like,” in conversation with The Paris Review Daily.
