"It’s quiet. And I really felt I needed that quiet. People say, ‘Well anger was your edge, and agitation was your edge, and that’s going to hurt your writing.’ I don’t know, maybe. It may be that in order to live a happier life you become a shittier writer. I don’t know. But I just couldn’t live in that fashion anymore, I just couldn’t. It would’ve destroyed my marriage. It was destroying me."
