Donna Tartt quotes :
To really be centered and to really work well and to think about the kinds of things that I need to think about, I need to spend large amounts of time alone.Donna Tartt
I believe, in a funny way, the job of the novelist is to be out there on the fringes and speaking for an experience that has not really been spoken for.Donna Tartt
