What war does, what violence does, is that it somehow sucks life out of people. It turns them into… one-dimensional, flat creatures. For a writer interested in the work of imagination and creativity… to reintroduce and affirm the importance of art in the life of a people, not only the content, but also art as form, as manners of doing and looking at things… that’s to tell [people] that humanity is not just about surviving, not just about an ultimate purpose like jihad or freedom or democracy… Humanity is far too complicated and too rich.
