“Never mind what it means. Get it down. Get it written. Perhaps you do not know what it means. Let others tell you what it means to them. It is your story; it is all you have. Tell it. Write it down. It is suicidal to contemplate your meaning, your theme, your reason for being before a single jot is on a page. Get it on the page, and then you can play with it; revise it; sculpt it; abort it. But get it done. There is an awful lot of not getting it done going on right now.” –Harold Pinter/Interview with James Grissom/1997 – “Follies of God”.
“Follies of God” by James Grissom (Alfred A. Knopf), a book drawn from five days spent with Tennessee Williams and two decades spent with those people he claimed helped him to matter and to write. ww.jamesgrissom.blogspot.com
