Greed is the antithesis of who I am, or at least of how I see myself. So it was mighty uncomfortable to go looking for it in every corner of the writing life and find it in me. I’m more grateful than ever to my co-author Cheryl Wilder and the writing friends we surveyed. I’m especially grateful to our series editor, Claire Guyton, who pushed me to articulate the subtle differences between all the things that look like Greed, and Nasty Beastly True Greed. How fitting on Election Eve to indulge in this dark, deadly sin!
