About this author


It’s not often that I hear from other writers, particularly writers bearing fun projects that they want to involve me in, but this week, I heard from Stephanie Friedman. She suggested I might like to be part of “My Writing Process” blog tour. I’m a teeny tiny bit non-techno-savvy, so I had to look up what a blog tour is. I’d been picturing something along the lines of an out-of-body experience...

Goldie and 2 other people liked Kasa Cotugno's review of The Hired Man:
The Hired Man by Aminatta Forna
"I don't say this often, but this book left me breathless.

According to the notes, Aminatta Forn has not lived in Croatia, but has lived in other troublesome parts of the world. In The Hired Man, she creates such a vivid landscape that it makes it..." Read more of this review »
Goldie and 1 other person liked Carl Brush's review of The Hired Man:
The Hired Man by Aminatta Forna
"Anne Lamott once stated that "If your narrator [fascinates] … , it isn't … going to matter if nothing much happens for a long time." She might have been writing about Aminatta Forta's The Hired Man.

The book opens thusly: At the time of writing I..." Read more of this review »
Goldie and 2 other people liked John Bartlett's review of The Hired Man:
The Hired Man by Aminatta Forna
"This is the sort of book that makes you neglect essentials,
chores like sleeping and going to work, snatching minutes here and there to keep absorbed in the writing and the story.
And then it makes you sad when it's all over. A true seduction.
There..." Read more of this review »

Michael Ondaatje
“We die containing a richness of lovers and tribes, tastes we have swallowed, bodies we have plunged into and swum up as if rivers of wisdom, characters we have climbed into as if trees, fears we have hidden in as if caves.

I wish for all this to be marked on by body when I am dead. I believe in such cartography - to be marked by nature, not just to label ourselves on a map like the names of rich men and women on buildings. We are communal histories, communal books. We are not owned or monogamous in our taste or experience.”
Michael Ondaatje, The English Patient

Rainer Maria Rilke
“Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.”
Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

Milan Kundera
“You can't measure the mutual affection of two human beings by the number of words they exchange.”
Milan Kundera

Robert A. Heinlein
“Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.”
Robert A. Heinlein, Stranger in a Strange Land

Audre Lorde
“When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.”
Audre Lorde
