Zitat des Tages von Frank Delaney:
If you have a book, you have a friend.
If you need proof of how the oral relates to the written, consider that many great novelists, including Joyce and Hemingway, never submitted a piece of work without reading it aloud.
'The Great Gatsby,' by F. Scott Fitzgerald, remains the most perfect novel that has ever come out of the United States. Everything in the book moves as it should, in the manner of a piece by Bach or Mozart.
For a startling period of my life, I reported the Troubles in Ireland for the BBC. I lived in Dublin and was called out to all sorts of incidents that, if taken together, add up to a war - bombings, assassinations, riots, shootings, robberies, jailbreaks, kidnappings, and sieges.
If you ever want to understand multitasking in prose, James Joyce is your man.
Writers have opinions - that, in part, is why they write. Therefore they have strong likes and dislikes.
Kitchens are for conversation. They're not just for cooking; they're for conversations.
To understand and reconnect with our stories, the stories of the ancestors, is to build our identities.
We all belong to an ancient identity. Stories are the rivers that take us there.
Storytelling, in print or speech, needs vital energy.
