Nice words from Arthur Levine, who pulled it all together:
These authors have been a joy to work with. What is incredibly wonderful about the final book is that you get to hear each writer’s distinctive voice but together they create another voice—the voice of the novel. I imagine the 10 of them sitting around a campfire, taking turns telling a single story. The thing is, with a group of celebrity authors like this, you know that they are all wonderful writers, but you don’t really know if in the end you will have a book that is interesting to read. But this is. It worked.
