I’m very staid compared to my students, actually.
That’s what the right-wing is good at: figuring out the left wing.
I think the best thing in cases of censorship or things like this is to get as much media as possible.
I understand that when people read my books that there’s something there – but I don’t identify with it.
I think it’s really important to find out why people hurt you or try to oppose you or whatever.
I wasn’t really into body piercings until I found that about half my female students had them.
And I’m working at trying to find a kind of language where I won’t be so easily modulated by expectation.
But I still don’t have a clear idea of what my voice is.
I might be writing what people expect me to write, writing from that place where I might be ruled by economic considerations. To overcome that, I started working with my dreams, because I’m not so censored when I use dream material.
I mean, once work’s out there it’s meant to be used.
