„Rushdie tvrdí, že tyrani a pisálci jsou přirozenými protivníky, ale takové rozdělení je podle mne příliš zjednodušující - to by z toho vyšli spisovatelé moc lacino. Já si myslím, že diktátoři prostě nesnesou konkurenci - stejně jako spisovatelé.“

„Our relationship wasn't the sun, the moon, the stars, but it wasn't bullshit, either.“ This Is How You Lose Her
