    "There is something in us, as storytellers and as listeners to stories, that demands the redemptive act, that demands that what falls at least be offered the chance to be restored. The reader of today looks for this motion, and rightly so, but what he has forgotten is the cost of it. His sense of evil is diluted or lacking altogether, and so he has forgotten the price of restoration. When he reads a novel, he wants either his sense tormented or his spirits raised. He wants to be transported, instantly, either to mock damnation or a mock innocence."

    "I’m just simply baffled by the idea that people can be without shelter in a country, and then be treated as criminals for being without shelter"

    Sir Nigel Rodley, human rights lawyer and UN committee chairman

    33 U.S. cities ban or are considering banning giving food to the homeless

    (via policymic)

    So.. do they want the homeless to starve to death? Or resort to theft?

    Is this a method of slow self-eradication or accelerated imprisonment? I don’t understand why this is being legislated.

    I am interested in works in which something happens when you look at them. And also I am interested in works that have either the simplicity or the complexity to change their meanings. Good art, to survive, must change its meaning. If we still had to think about a Pollock the way he thought about…

    "We are very cruelly trapped between what we would like to be and what we actually are. And we cannot possibly become what we would like to be until we are willing to ask ourselves just why the lives we lead on this continent are mainly so empty, so tame, and so ugly."

    How, then, has your work process changed since you had children?

    I feel more disciplined now. I better understand what free time is. If I have work time, I am not going to go online, and I am not going to do a single thing that is going to distract from writing because I have, say, two hours…
