QUENBY MOONE is a graphic designer and the author of a memoir, Living in Twilight, which does not concern vampires who dazzle like diamonds when sunlight plays upon their skin. She lives in Portland, Oregon, with her husband, a musical genius, and their son, whose genius needs no qualification.
She’s written beautifully and lovingly about her late father and his battle with cancer. We learned about his love of books, and how he introduced his oft-tired teenage daughter to the miracle and wonder of coffee. And we were there at the end, when she gave him his boarding pass to cross the River Styx.
Oh, and she found out the hard way that the first rule of first grade is, Don’t talk about Nazis.
