“Having been raised in New York I feel I received an enormous gift. People travel all over the world to write in exotic places, but you grow up here, in the boroughs, it’s like living in different worlds. The older I get the more I’m stuck by the drama of change that goes on around us. It’s a great gift for a novelist. You don’t have to search for it. In New York you just live it. ” Peter Quinn.
