Julien Green

"Our life is a book that writes itself and whose principal themes sometimes escape us. We are like characters in a novel who do not always understand what the author wants of them."

Julien Green, Diary 1928-1957 (1964)

I wonder how you came to Grren. I knew him the years before his death interviewed him for The Guardian in Lodon
