Marfa, Writer
Fall 2004

“Marfa is wonderfully still—but for the sound of its trains (and I really liked that)—it is also riotous with creatures. And because wild things have always been the powers that animate my imagination, I wrote well there. After gazing at the spiders and the birds, and taking in that big sky, a number of characters dropped by—and I could hear their voices distinctly, it was so quiet!—and was seized by an unexpected book!”
