"Writing out my confession, I have tried to capture the essence of my life.  Because everything I write about is in the past, I don’t see myself as living anymore… The present is shifted instantly in the past, and what had once seemed unfathomable— torment, misery, profound suffering— is now actual.
Now that I approach the end of my confession, I find that I am beginning to lose hold of my character.  I have become removed from the hero of my own story, you see.  To lose hold of your own character must be part of the natural order of things in No Man’s Land.”   —Boy Hernandez, From the Memoirs of a Non-Enemy Combatant, by Alex Gilvarry
I’ll be in conversation with Alex at the Greenlight Bookstore in Brooklyn this Tuesday at 7:30
