'Every book is a different country.'

24 November 2013

'Work is the only interesting thing for me if I'm working out on the edge of the unknown. The immediacy of discovery, that's what's interesting to me. Every book is a different country. When I start my fourth, it will be as if I've never written a book before. I'll be completely at sea, and nothing I've ever done before in my life will help me at all.'

Donna Tartt, author of The Goldfinch, in the Sunday Times' Culture
