You know, the tunnel to Towers Foundation is going to pay off your mortgage. And you know, as you can imagine, I was numb and shocked as it was. And then to hear that this organization was going to come in and support us was just It was overwhelming being personally had run the race together in 2000 and 12. So yeah, to have that that connection. Um you know that we had been there. We have supported them and have them turn around and support us was amazing. It's very it's very significant. Beyond just the money and and and the fact that it takes the financial burden. It's very significant that there are people to care that much, isn't it?

What goes through your mind when you're seeing what's going on in the world today because tunnel to towers? It's all about bringing everybody together like Mayor, Giuliani said. And you just see so much divisiveness going on. Oh, absolutely. And you know, when you go, there are two ways I can go with this, but when you go to any of their events, it's definitely feels like You know, these are these are seeing people. These are people that think the same way We do it. They just want to help and everybody at that walk everybody who goes to the walks around the United States. Feels exactly the same way and You know, I did a couple interviews last week on Afghanistan and everything that's going on. And you know, we were all kind of in the same boat of gosh, This is horrible. This is exhausting. What can we do to help? And, you know, I just kept trying to point friends, you know, in the direction of tunnel to towers or other organizations that help because that's what they need to do right now is they need to back the military and they need you back. The 1st 1st responders that have have our backs all the time. Sharing. Your husband was a member of the F D. N Y, uh, what happened? He decided you wanted to volunteer and go to Afghanistan or right. So Yes, we So Chris joined the FDA, one in 2000 and three in 2000 and five We were sitting on his bed in the Bronx. And he said, I've always wanted to serve my country now, remember, he was 29 years old at the time. So he decided to go into the Marine Corps 29. He turned 30 in boot camp. He was older than most of his drill instructors. Yeah, they had fun with him. They had a lot of fun with him on many, many levels and and then in 2000 and eight week after our daughter was born, he went to Iraq. And then, um, you know, we we've luckily got him back safely that time. And then about you know, 10 years have gone by and Chris is like it. It's my turn. You know, and he volunteered to go because You know, especially for the reservists. You know, we sit there. We watched the active duty go over and over and over again. I mean, we have Christmas brother had four deployments. We have other friends that had six or seven. And you know that reservists feel like they need to do their part to and he volunteered. Um, you know, I had a reporter asked me Why 19. That's you know, that's why you go into the military so that you can help others and you can represent your country. What part of the Bronx By the way, so we were in Woodland would line there you go. My parents. That's where I moved to when I was about 14. So you say Barnabas Parish. Okay? Yeah, We were all the way up. Gosh, um often, McLean. I think it was so we were only there a few years and I love that area. I loved being able to walk down and you know, we spent a lot of time at the rambling house. Um, but it was It was a good time. Mrs. Lippman. This is David Paris and was your husband. The last American soldier to be killed in Afghanistan before this recent situation. He was not. He was not. We did lose other other men after him. And I think I'd have to go back and look, but there weren't that many after him. Um, you know, I think there were maybe in the double digits, but Had a definitely gotten significantly. I wouldn't say safer but, uh and he was right. I think the thing with everything Going on in Afghanistan. If he was at Bagram. He was killed outside of Bagram Air Force Base. And you know that Air Force base was secured. So watching everything on the news. The past couple of weeks was just then it's rock a lot of our world because it's just Seemed like they really could have used a much better plan than what they actually had. And that Air Force base an addition. Everything else is 400 miles from China. I ended up Why would we give up an air Force base? Maybe you'd give you give you left arm for an air force base. 400. Miles gets worse. I was talking to Gordon Chang this afternoon. And he says the Afghanistan ease are considering you know to China. Great. Well, they're not as well. I mean, they put the terrorists in charge of the government that Obama let out things going to finance the government. That's I mean, there was no reason to give up that Air Force base. We could have said the war is over, brought the troops back. And said, Well, we have that Air Force base like we have one of Qatar, Germany, friends taking the first mortgage for all the money we spent taking the first morning turn all the lithium and other mineral deposits. Not a bad idea, John. That's why we need business next to that's what the Russians do. Shannon, you know, almost didn't have a tunnel.

I think well he thinks he has some sort of relationship with eliza. He thinks that alissa likes them and that they have a connection like you know he's a little delusional in terms of like. Yeah yeah i was gonna say maybe an understatement. But he's a little delusional in terms of like who he thinks likes him and it seems to me that he thinks all the women like him a lot and think elissa an him a connection.

"About giving the flight announcement for brand further my game book your ass going home. That wasn't the one where he Down on it on a normal season. I feel like i keep saying on a normal season. But it's like you could envision situation where brent comes up with is like plan or whatever and then the person like you know this actually my work and then everything gets flipped so you might as a casual viewer. Be watching and be like oh a xavier. Might actually go for this. And then he just psych not doing it. Sorry yeah pretty good. I have questions. Yes who who gets to be the person to tell brent that this this happened right because let's say like the blindside goes hitch it comes. I assist julie and jill print. were you doing. Maybe she hits the most out of the hair like marcello something like that but when does he get the footage like go directly backstage and they like okay. Let me show you the highlights.

Like i mean. what's what's the version of. There's an alliance called. The committee doesn't lions calls. All the people in house reveals really been watching my mom. My mom was like there must be a battle back because she's not revealing. anything was like. Wow very good here catch you know. I don't think there's a back They're all the house but she hasn't been really revealing anything. I and also. I think brands will ever watch an episode of big brother. Ever talk about any of this wonder the l. Something it was like one person like an ally of his betrayed him. It'd be like well. Guess what your ally was actually in an alliance or a. I think she might do that. But i don't think in this situation. She would necessarily need to reveal anything. I think it would just be like brown. What happened you. Were so confident. He'll be like well. I saw this coming. Because i'm a huge threat. Algebra situation like the best campaign jail. I've seen a weird thing to say by the way. I haven't gotten comment on the fact that she was like. This was the best rob. I've seen from you from you to this time. Okay she's like. I'm not gonna lie about it not say.

Shall we say that. Oh she'll be like you know what doesn't talk your first one. I'd better honestly kidding. Sophomore slow honestly. If britney starts rapping you would have to expect from me to flip. Voted that point and i'm sorry i would have to do it. I like britney. I sadly voted. Because you just won't stop. You just will not start wrapping. I know people sat you down this week and say hey keep acute. You ain't gotta do this war. We did it say yeah. You don't have to go there anymore.

"I've got admit there's been part of me. That feels almost you know guilty or bad you back into that time and and that material because it lives on in the pages of your fantastic book and so it's always finding new readers and it's always sort of newly alive for people you know. New people are finding it newly alive and for you. It's something that is very much both in the past. Not i guess yeah it has been weird having this part of my life kick sort of bring itself to the surface over and over again. But that's fine. I can handle it. There's a phrase alison uses concepts. Daniel paternity that. I actually had to go look up. Concepts daniel is defined as of the same substance or essence we can be genetically linked con substantial but there is another kind of link as well which is a spiritual link in beautiful moment. Allison's father and she are discussing james joyce's ulysses since this is the kind of thing they did together and alison. dad says. Is it so unusual for the two things to coincide. I did find myself thinking. And i suppose it was because of my own story in my own experience but the idea of having deep and profound spiritual connections which can or cannot be part of having a con substantial or genetic connection. And there's this part of your book where you're trying on your father's clothes as as a kid And he's trying on women's clothes at the same time or it's kind of. There's a lot about again in that sort of hiding in plain sight kind of way all of it. He would by my mother's clothes for her and and he confided in me that during that one conversation we had that He dressed in girls clothes as a kid when he got a chance. There's this other sentence which is sexual. Shame is its own kind of death. And i would love for you to talk about that a little because i think the silencing of the deepest parts of ourselves either because we live in a way in a place where it feels like it's out of the question or it will be to mortifying is so much at the basis of so many of the kinds of secrets that people keep. Yeah that's the real tragedy of my father. That i feel like with only a little bit of time are a little bit of help or a little bit of being born slightly later or having some slightly different experiences. He might have been able to do that to confront that but he just wasn't. He just couldn't do it when i talk about sexual shame being a kind of death. I think precisely because our sexuality is you know it's it's you're literally the core of year by talent. It's what keeps us all reproducing so to have that stoppard up in some way. Now i just think of my dad living this sort of half life in this little conservative farm town or a double life hafer double. I don't know at some point. After his death you come across some photos and among them is a photo of roy the babysitter who babysat for you and your brothers. In the summer of sixty nine and there was a trip that your father took you on. Roy was the babysitter and it's clear that they were involved with each other. And there's this you know very handsome picture of roy mixed in with these other family photos and he had your father had blotted out or inked out the date on the roy photo but he had left it in. These are the mysteries that were left with right. like why. why did he leave the photograph in with the rest of the photographs but block out the date. Honestly danny. i was like that's weird. I don't know. I didn't go any further with it. I mean it was literally in an envelope with all the other pictures with the same date stamp on them. If he really had been concerned would have destroyed the frequent photograph. You know but i think it was. I think i felt like it was his way of saying. Look there's nothing wrong. That's why i have this picture right here. It perfectly open above word. I mean like what you know what we're left with in the end like you right. What's lost in translation is the complexity of loss itself right. That's one of my favorite lines. Because what do you do with that. You can't no you can't no. You're not going to know. And so it just kind of stands as an artifact of that time and of your dad yeah. This was a year after. My dad died when i found it and i suddenly knew when i found that picture that i wanted to tell the story that it was just too good of a story i felt guilty about fifteen that feeling too but it all kind of catch me in a burst in that little photograph. Everything was there you know. Alison grew up on an artists colony of sorts. Her dad is in the library exploring his profound connection to literature. Her mom has her work in the theater. And then all the kids are doing their own artistic thing in their own rooms in this rambling house. It wasn't the artistic life allison's parents had dreamt off or anticipated they returned to central pennsylvania. Because allison's dad's dad had had a heart attack. These things happen. Plans get derailed dreams deferred but perhaps allison's parents founded easier to stay in her dad's hometown for him to work as a high school teacher as well as in the family business for them to be the local intelligentsia. What would have happened if they had to. Greenwich village with their marriage. Have survived would have stayed together. I feel like the message i got from. Both my parents was don't have children. And i i. Didn't you know i took that very seriously. It was like children had put an end to both of their artistic hopes But i think that was part of the cover. Children aren't necessarily what what gets in the way of an artistic or creative life is dishonesty with oneself that gets in the way of being able to express that life. Yeah and they had a compact that they were not going to confront the truth of their situation. And then i came along and know threw it down on the floor like a gauntlet. I feel like there was something about that. Life that served their purposes. That kept them from having to really face the real. I don't know. I mean the truth is they shouldn't.
