"I always made a distinction between what I call the writing self and the biographical self. The man who pays the taxes, takes the garbage outside, washes the dishes... It's really not the same person who writes my books. I dont know. I think the person who writes is an invisible being who inhabits me. But it's not exactly me. It's not my physical or biographical self. I can't really discuss my work, I don't really understand it very well."
