Best Quotes:

The complexity of things -- the things within things -- just seems to be endless. I mean nothing is easy, nothing is simple.

Naturally my stories are about women -- I'm a woman. I don't know what the term is for men who write mostly about men. I'm not always sure what is meant by "feminist." In the beginning I used to say, well, of course I'm a feminist. But if it means that I follow a kind of feminist theory, or know anything about it, then I'm not. I think I'm a feminist as far as thinking that the experience of women is important. That is really the basis of feminism.

I have never kept diaries. I just remember a lot and am more self-centered than most people.
