“I realize as I get older, my chief interest really is in the creation of art. I want to know how it’s done. I want to know how it’s done in any field: music, art, film. What I don’t want to read is slightly airy guff about how these things make you feel; I want to know technically how something is achieved. When you can get people talking about the nitty-gritty, where you place the mic to get a drum sound or where the inspiration for a particular novel came from at a particular time in a writer’s life, it just feels like you are getting the actual stuff.” -Nick Hornby
