It took me a long time, and many false starts, to find my way to a project where I felt that same synthesis of subject and psychological state again.

Anyway, one waits for the creative flow to start. One cannot force it, and shouldn't. This is what I would like to make clear: that a creative novelist—or dramatist for that matter—always relates back to what he or she has stored up from the first two or three decades of life. Childhood and youth are the source. Certainly all that I have written— the voices, faces, places, and images—the whole creative thrust, comes from my early life.
