Leslie Jamison Quotes
Whenever I’ve been stuck on a project, it’s always brought me solace to the return to books that moved me in the past. It’s a nice way to get outside my own head; and it brings me back to one of the most important reasons I write at all: to bring some pleasure to readers, to make them think or feel.
Sometimes I do feel exposed. I have this kind of theory about different channels or levels of relaying experience – when I tell someone, one on one, in a personal context, about something that’s happened to me – that has a very different valence, a different charge, than when/if I’ve said it in a public forum.
