When asked to say some­thing about their work, nov­el­ists often resort to the book wrote itself” or that their char­ac­ters seemed to have lives of their own. I could say a sim­i­lar thing about my work — although it would be mak­ing light of an intense process, a kind of tightrope walk between the con­scious and uncon­scious. As the Zen mas­ters say, a paint­ing is already there before it is paint­ed — but with­out the artist, you’d nev­er know.
