Notable Quotable: Edwidge Danticat on Writing and the Self

"Writing is an integral part of who I am as a human being. It’s how I process everything. Everything that happens to me feels a lot more real, more permanent, after I write about it. I never have all the answers when I begin writing something. And I don’t always have all the answers when I’m done, but I get a little bit closer to having a deeper understanding of myself." -- Edwidge Danticat
