Adam Haslett Quotes

Adam Haslett Quotes: You have to expose part of yourself to create a character deep enough for readers to care about.

Quotes about Adam Haslett: That is much of what I think the writer's job is - to slow people down. To give them the chance to notice the passage of time as experienced by others as a reminder of what it is like to be alive. Because we are most often distracted from that. Massively distracted.
