A conversation between Jonathan Safran Foer and his grandmother.
Grandmother: "A farmer, a Russian, God bless him, he saw my condition, and he went into his house and come out with a piece of meat for me."
JSF: "He saved your life."
G: "I didn't eat it."
JSF: "You didn't eat it?"
G: "It was pork. I wouldn't eat pork."
G: "What do you mean why?"
JSF: "What, because it wasn't kosher?"
G: "Of course."
JSF: "But not even to save your life?"
G: "If nothing matters, there's nothing to save."
Jonathan Safran Foer is one of my favorite authors of all time.
