“Love is the outlaw's duty.”
“Literature can teach us how to live before we live, and how to die before we die. I believe that writing is practice for death, and for every other transformation human beings encounter.”
“Talk between women friends is always therapy.”
“As before, there is a great silence, with no end in sight. The writer surrenders, listening.”
