Nana was the one who got me hooked on Stephen King novels at about the age of 12. She used to tell Mom not to let me read them before bedtime but what did I always see when I spent the night was Nana sound asleep in bed with one of his novels on her chest.

“An Interview with Andy Christensen”

In the Spring of 1981, Karen Christensen recorded an interview with her father Andrew Christensen (download), as part of a paper on successful aging for a psychology course. This is a copy of the surviving portion of that interview, conducted at their home on Cherry Street in Geneva, NY, with additional commentary by his wife, Elizabeth. The file is a 30.7 megabyte MP3. Thanks to Karen for the interview and her son-in-law Mark for digitizing it.
