Do you consider the script to be autobiographical?
Hmmm…well, I mean, isn’t everything autobiographical? I mean, we all see the world through our own tiny keyhole, right? I always think of Thomas Wolfe, you know, have you ever seen that little one page note to reader in the front of “Look Homeward, Angel,” right, you know what I’m talking about? Anyway, he says that we are the sum of all the moments of our lives, and that anybody who sits down to write is gonna use the clay of their own life, that you can’t avoid that. So when I look at my own life, you know, I have to admit, right…that I’ve never been around a bunch of guns, or violence. You know, not really. No political intrigue or, helicopter crash, right?
But my life, from my own point of view, has been full of drama. And so I thought that if I could write a book that…that could capture what it’s like to really meet somebody. I mean one of the most exciting things that’s ever happened to me is to really meet somebody, make that connection, and if I could…make that valuable, to capture that, that would be the attempt or…Did I answer your question?
