Thoughts on art, creativity, and the writing life.

Quote of the Day

1. Presentation—rhythmic wracking of the nerves.
2. The high point—the trick.
3. The author—an inventor—discoverer.
4. The actor—mechanized movement, not buskins but roller skates, not a mark but a nose on fire. Acting—not movement but a wriggle, not mimicry but a grimace, not speech but shouts…
5. The play—an accumulation of tricks.

Grigori Kozintsev, “AB: Parade of the Eccentric”
