“I want you to show them the difference between what they think you are and what you can be.”

 

“Nietzsche said without music, life would be a mistake. To me, without books, life would be a mistake.”

 

“I believe that the writer should tell a story. I believe in plot. I believe in creating characters and suspense.”
