A fiction novelist of no published piece of literature except the typical school required pieces of which are boring and oh so factual.
“When writing a novel, a writer should create living people; people, not characters. A character is a caricature.”
“If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing, or sing in writing, then don’t write, because our culture has no use for it.”
“The good parts of a book may be only something a writer is lucky enough to overhear or it may be the wreck of his whole damn life and one is as good as the other.”
