“It can change my world. And does, and has and will . . . Anything that affects my body, that my body undergoes, also affects my writing. My writing affects my life (the vice versa) because I must do it, so I give up many other things. In my writing and in my translation, too, later on, I discover traces of my life, of my autobiography. Though I do not write autobiography.”
