Why do you write?

Virginia Woolf wrote somewhere that the reason she resented death was because it was the one experience she’d never describe. Art gives shape to what’s happened to you, so it is therapy, but therapy plus form and myth and poetry. I like the double pay-off of writing alone, then handing it over to others to fill the images with living bodies.

Are you a vivid dreamer?

Yes. I seem to be able to dream insane visions and at the same time analyse how the visions relate to the waking world.
