You have to expose part of yourself to create a character deep enough for readers to care about... - Adam Haslett Quotes

Quote:You have to expose part of yourself to create a character deep enough for readers to care about. You try not to because it's hard and at times shameful, but then when you read those pages over and you see they have no life to them so you throw them away and force yourself to be more honest. So I suppose the answer is I see myself in all my characters, in their best moments and in their worst. - Adam Haslett Quotes
