I went on a book tour immediately after 9/11. I was due to leave the following Wednesday, so I just did. It was an amazing thing, because planes hadnt been flying very many days, and I got on this plane and went to San Francisco, and the minute that plane lifted above the clouds, I felt this incredible sense of lightness.

Im basically different things to different people. If its a guy, Im-a probably have my guard up because its a street rule that when men come around that I dont know, I just immediately throw shade on them. But I dont associate with fellas all that much; if its a girl - a beautiful girl - I be nice.
Ive always liked texts that you immediately understand. I suppose the playwrights who really speak to me are Edward Bond, Joe Orton and Harold Pinter. Ive been in six different Pinter productions - I love the clarity of his language. He has this way of using words - theres a thrill to them.

I dont know about happy endings, because I dont think, eventually, anything is happy. You feel a bout of happiness with good news. Five minutes later, there could be a traffic jam or a phone call from an irritating relative or a weird thought, or it could be a tweet that annoys you, and your emotion will flip immediately.

Every trial lawyer knows what it is like to sit patiently while the other side puts on its case. Inevitably they make a few points that appeal to the jury, and waiting for the opportunity to respond can be painful. The desire to jump up immediately - to point out the flaws in logic or the factual distortions - is often overpowering.
