I always thought of my work as being animated by a spirit of unhinged generosity. Mark Leyne
I've always wanted to be a poet at the beginning. I would look at my grandparents' books and my parents' books. And in my family, a typical aspirational Jewish family, being a writer was very much exalted, and it seemed impossible to me, that I could ever do something like that.
I think of memory as a game, that is as something one engages in with a very profound kind of "playfulness."
I was an infinitely hot and dense dot.
Stand-up comedy had an interesting effect on me in terms of how I started to think about constructing things, because I really loved the interstices, the linkages, or lack thereof.
