Marisha Pessl Quotes

Marisha Pessl Quotes: I believe writers need to be chameleons, or like Meryl Streep, who can play all sorts of characters.

Marisha Pessl Quote: Life had been a suit I'd only put on for special occasions. Most of the time I kept it in the back of my closet, forgetting it was there.

You wouldn't believe this, but life hinges on a couple of seconds you never see coming. And what you decide in those few seconds determines everything from then on... And you have no idea what you'll do until you're there...

Marisha Pessl Sayings: When I'm creating characters, I definitely think of theme songs. Writing for me is very visual, so I sometimes think of it in terms of a movie with a soundtrack, and try to transfer that to words.
