Personal Quote:

I'm never going to be shy about anything, what I write about is what I know; it's more about my version of the truth as I know it. That's part of my talent, really - putting the way people really speak into the things I write. My only obligation is to my characters. And they came from where I have been. See more »

Trivia:

Stated on a radio interview that the one thing he cannot stand seeing in movies is real animal and insect death or torture, and that real acts of violence have no place in film, which is about realism through artifice. See more »
