Writer Joshua Ferris' new novel To Rise Again at a Decent Hour is about a morbid dentist who grapples with death and atheism. In the interview Ferris explains his own religious beliefs:
"I’m not sure that I’m entirely comfortable with being described as a non-believer only because there’s this little shadow of a doubt that I keep open. I have a character in the book describe herself as a "non-practicing atheist," and I think that’s how I would describe myself. When push comes to shove, and I’m forced to think reasonably, I affirm again and again that there is no God.
But as a rule, as I go through life, I find that can lead to a dogma that is no more welcoming to my way of thinking than the dogma of believers. So I tend to want to keep the door open an inch, which I think sounds to many people like cheating, but to me it’s simply a matter of keeping — not my options open — but my mind wide, as wide as possible, and my heart open to new possibilities.”

Painting by Jemima Kirke via New York Times
“This is the daughter of a friend of mine. She is 6 years old and was not in the least bit uncomfortable with me painting her. Most kids aren’t, and naturally, they are actually quite bored by the process. But, what was interesting about Sasha is that she actually seemed to understand why I was painting her. She showed up in a beautiful white dress that she picked out herself, and had a lot of say in how she posed for the painting. She even helped me decide which size canvas. We really worked together on this one and took each other seriously. I was interested in her maturity and her poise.” “Sasha,” 2013
