Reviews

"If writing were illegal I'd be in prison. I can't not write. It's a compulsion." --David Baldacci

"When I'm writing... I'm living in two different dimensions: this life I'm living now...and this completely other world I'm inhabiting that no one else knows about." --Jennifer Egan

"Every story is a seed inside of me that starts to grow and grow, like a tumor, and I have to deal with it sooner or later." --Isabel Allende

"In the beginning, it was that sense of losing time. Now...I have the sense that I can biff the world a bit. I can exert a force." --Michael Lewis
