Q: Several years back, you expressed skepticism in some interviews about family life given your parents’ divorce.

DD: My skepticism came from growing up in a fairly unhappy family environment. I was the kind of kid who would have loved to have experienced a happy home life where you didn’t worry about how much your parents were arguing that particular week. So naturally that kind of thing leaves you with some fairly heavy emotional wreckage and negative feelings which are difficult to erase. When my parents divorced, it was hard for me to accept the fact that I didn’t have a family anymore in the usual sense and I spent a lot of years worrying that love is a very transient and fragile thing. You learn to accept living in a world where you don’t feel you belong and you don’t feel that people care about each other or about you.
