Why We Do the Things We Do
Q: Why do many people light menorahs in the front windows of their homes?
Susan Isaacs

In the mid-1970s, Susan Isaacs was a busy wife and mother-but not in the traditional sense. She was also a senior editor at Seventeen magazine, a political speechwriter and a freelance journalist. Isaacs eventually decided to leave the magazine world and stay home with her two small children, only to start her first novel barely a year later. The rest, as they say, is history.

Isaacs's tenth novelAnyplace I Hang My Hat, about a twenty-something political reporter searching for her estranged mother-was published in October.
