Why do you write?

For me Genet’s phrase sums it up: to write is to undergo ‘horizontal vertigo’, exhilarating and perilous, to enter language as adventure. With all that slumbering immensity that is etymology, languages are humankind’s great works in progress. To write is to take up this terrifying and beautiful challenge, in which one must inevitably fail.

Are you a vivid dreamer?

My dreams are vivid somatically and cinematically with a fury and a passion that often shock me, but I trust their image-force and language play.
