Their individual characters are so finely drawn, the friendship that grows between them despite their enormous differences of temperament is so moving and hilarious, that they are one of the most brilliant depictions of friendship in all of literature.

And sometimes--perhaps, often--it is a hard slog. What I can say is that when I am writing I feel more alive than at almost any other time. And this is a great joy. I love being inside the lives of my characters and their world. So, for me, I guess this is the best thing about being a writer.(less)

What inspired me to write "The Confessions of X."

The Confessions of X is the story of St. Augustine of Hippo’s concubine told in her own voice. I first came across her in religion class at my English convent school when I was 12. I remember raising my hand and asking Sister Bernadette who this mysterious woman was in Augustine’s "Confessions"—the woman he referred to as "Una", the One. She replied: “No one knows. She is lost to history.” That ph Read more of this blog post »

“A dream-like state enveloped us, days filled with sunlight, the creamy churn of waves as the ship plunged and reared like a mettlesome horse, the flash of silver spray against our faces and, at night, a canopy of white-hot stars in blackness so deep it seemed as if I could stretch out my hand and plunge it wrist-deep into the velvet of it.”
Suzanne M. Wolfe, The Confessions of X

“I am the living heart of a tree uncovered by the ax, still pliable, still green and full of sap.”
Suzanne M. Wolfe, The Confessions of X

“You must look through a window and see the world as it really is, not split like two halves of a broken cup but whole and undivided. How else can it hold wine?”
Suzanne M. Wolfe, The Confessions of X
