The Queen of the Moral Dilemma: Jodi Picoult
Jodi Picoult's novels are about issues with a capital I -- her latest, Vanishing Acts, is about a search and rescue worker who discovers that she herself was abducted 30 years ago; My Sister's Keeper deals with a young girl who was conceived to provide bone-marrow to her older sister. After 13 years of invasive procedures, the girl hires a lawyer to gain control over her own body.
As Picoult kicks off a tour in New Zealand (she has more readers there than in the U.S.) she talks about her need to write about complex and frightening issues, her children and her fans.
