The author of the article, when speaking
about interviews, said:
My next story, the same thing happened. Its about magic, and I spent a lot of time with Teller, the quieter, smaller half of Penn & Teller. And love isnt too strong a word there, either. I just love how he thinks, how he views life and pursues his art, how much he cares and feels, his attention to detail. Teller, for me, is the person you get when you combine a big brain with a huger heart, which is an all-too-rare combination. Im sure readers wont confuse my feelings about him. I can see how J-school profs and more clinical journalists will not like what Ive done, will believe Ive committed sins, and sometimes I feel like I am a sinner. Someone who doesnt like me very much once dismissed me as a man of deep feeling, and he meant it meanly, but I can hardly say that he was wrong about me.
(and the Roger Ebert profile he refers to is worth seeking out.)
