If I ever wrote a memoir,
it’d be called either “Pearls and PBR” or “Red wine and chapped lips.”
"My mother made me a scientist without ever intending to. Every other Jewish mother in Brooklyn would ask her child after school, “So? Did you learn anything today?” But not my mother. “Izzy,” she would say, “did you ask a good question today?” That difference – asking good questions – made me become a scientist."
