I write like someone who grew up reading English fairy tales and books for girls in boarding schools, who loved Dostoyevsky and Updike and Doris Lessing’s Golden Notebook, who thought the first pages of Oblomov were brilliant, who hated popular music until the Beatles and the Stones came along, who went to graduate school at age 50 to get a Ph.D. in history to get away from writing for a living. I write like someone who is interested in the past, but doesn’t revere it or want to live in it again.
