On how she chose her son’s name Egypt:

Well, Egypt was a really big important trip for me in my life. It came at a certain point where I had been working just endlessly and I really had no idea what it was to take a true vacation and it came to a place where I just really needed it or be on the verge of a break down. So when I went, it was such an uplifting, eye opening, historic, powerful and re-genitive experience that I hold a very fond place for Egypt. So when it came to naming our baby, I fell in love with it, we both loved it and decided like months before he was born.

On her decision to go to Egypt alone:

At that time I just wanted to get away so badly that I was excited to be by myself. I think it’s something important because I think when you go places with people, you’re concerned about if they are having a good time or do they like the food I like or are they happy with this restaurant?

I would read my book in the little café that I went and the guy would come up to me and be like, “Are you waiting for someone?” and I’m like, “No, we’re here.” It was really liberating.
