A.S. Byatt

  • Lists are a form of power.

  • Think of this — that the writer wrote alone, and the reader read alone, and they were alone with each other.

  • I was no good at being a child.

    • A.S. Byatt,
    • in Linda Pastan, "Yesterday's Noise: The Poetry of Childhood Memory," The Writer's Handbook ()
  • She devoured stories with rapacious greed, ranks of black marks on white, sorting themselves into mountains and trees, stars, moons and sun, dragons, dwarfs, and forests containing wolves, foxes and the dark.

A.S. Byatt, English writer, poet
