About

“First you have nothing, and then, astonishingly, after ripping out your brain and your heart and betraying your friends and ex-lovers and dreaming like a zombie over the page till you can’t see or hear or smell or taste, you have something. Something new. Something of value. Something to hold up and admire. And then? Well, you’ve got a jones, haven’t you? And you start all over again, with nothing.”
T.Coraghessan Boyle, This Monkey, My Back. From The Eleventh Draft, ed. Frank Conroy. New York: HarperCollins, 1999.
