The Art Of Not Belonging, Dwyer Murphy interviews Edwidge Danticat – Guernica / A Magazine of Art & Politics

Edwidge Danticat: Albert Camus in his December 1957 lecture “L’artiste et son temps,” which was translated as “Create Dangerously” says, “The writers of today know this. If they speak up, they are criticized and attacked. If they become modest and keep silent, they are vociferously blamed for their silence.” I think everyone should just do what they’re comfortable doing. I wouldn’t want to diminish the fact that writing itself, whatever it is, can be a way of being involved. And I would never want to presume to tell others what to do.
