#51 In love with books – Helen Moffett

April 13, 2011 in Sonder kategorie

What made you fall in love with books – and how did it happen?

Hmm, a bit like asking me what made me fall in love with breathing, or eating, or sleeping. Books were always just there, and because I learned to read very young, I can’t remember life before books. Or imagine life without books.

What’s your favourite line from a book, play or poem?

I still think the most perfect short quotation comes from a piece Colleen Higgs wrote for LitNet, when she said, “Poetry is a psychic resource, like good parenting.” I think that all good writing and books are a psychic resource. Books for me have always been a parallel form of good parenting.
