From his Q & A at the Simon & Schuster website:

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. Charles Dickens --he wrote all kinds of stories and he loved his characters.

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. I'd love to be able to play a musical instrument. I've tried, and I've been told to stop doing such horrible things to those poor, defenseless instruments.

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. An elephant. They're smart, big, loyal and they live a long time.
