Michèle Roberts

  • For me writing is a way of trying to connect the outside world and the inside world.

  • ... write out of desire, out of your own longing to write, because of a yearning, or lack, or desire in yourself. Also you need to love language, to love words for their own sake, not use language just as a transparent medium for ideas.
