Quotation – August 2, 2012

I write in a confessional way, because to me it’s so exciting and fun.  There’s nothing funnier on earth than our humanness and our monkeyness.  There’s nothing more touching, and it’s what I love to come upon when I’m reading; someone who’s gotten really down and dirty, and they’re taking the dross of life and doing alchemy, turning it into magic, tenderness and compassion and hilarity.  So I tell my students that if they really love something, pay attention to it.  Try to write something that they would love to come upon.
