One of the things reading does, it makes your loneliness manageable if you are an essentially lonely person.

When Im writing, I think about the garden, and when Im in the garden I think about writing. I do a lot of writing by putting something in the ground.

I believe fiction is a totally legitimate and extremely effective vehicle for serious insight into how society works, or serious speculation, serious analysis. The very best of literature over the centuries has been revealing of human nature, social structures, institutions.

People often ask how do you write? I say well you just write by writing. You have something in your mind that you want to say but the actual words are not going to come until youve literally sat down and made it possible for the words to come to your mind and be communicated.

Writing for me is to a large extent self-entertainment, and the only child is driven to do that.

Find your best time of the day for writing and write. Dont let anything else interfere. Afterwards it wont matter to you that the kitchen is a mess.

Writing was the soul of everything else Wanting to be a writer was wanting to be a person.

An unreviewed book is a struck bell that gives no resonance. Without reviews, literature would be oddly mute in spite of all those words on all those pages of all those books. Reviewing makes of reading a participant sport, not a spectator sport.

True memoir is written, like all literature, in an attempt to find not only a self but a world.

Writing is like painting: a highlight here, a touch of colour there, can suggest more than an album of photographs can show.

When I teach writing, I have a mantra: Be a first-rate version of yourself, and not a second-rate version of another writer.
