Winterson And Homes

Thursday, February 25, 2010

Novelist Jeanette Winterson once observed, "as a writer, your best friends are dead."

Creative process aside, many friends of the non-fictional variety were on hand for her recent reading at NYU's Creative Writer's House. A.M. Homes also joined in the event.

Their work has been controversial in the past. Several countries even banned their bold, unsparing pieces. They discussed their approach to narratives in the latest "Talk To Me" series.
