Anyway, Moriarty was asked to name a book which changed her life. She answered:
"I think every good book I've read has changed me in some small way. A recent example: the other day, I walked past a woman who was sitting and smoking beside a baby carriage. I had a fleeting, negative judgment about her as a mother, and then I remembered one of David Sedaris' stories about his funny and wonderful mother, a chain smoker, and it reminded me that I really didn't know anything about the woman by the carriage or what kind of mother she was."I know it's tough giving up that last group we're allowed to hate, especially when we're supposed to be so nice to everyone all the time, but let's face it - you're no saint.
