Going back

“One day I might write about the war – it would help to have been there.”

“It won’t. If you don’t go back anything you write will be far more true. When I visit Mother and Dad in England I look around the house and can’t believe I was ever a child there. It’s like a film set with these two old actors… even they can’t remember the script.”

J.G. Ballard, The Kindness of Women
