The world is full of stories, and from time to time they permit themselves to be told.
Old Cherokee Saying

When I write I am trying to express my way of being in the world. This is primarily a process of elimination: once you have removed all the dead language, the second-hand dogma, the truths that are not your own but other people’s, the mottos, the slogans, the out-and-out lies of your nation, the myths of your historical moment—once you have removed all that warps experience into a shape you do not recognise and do not believe in—what you are left with is something approximating the truth of your own conception.
