WRITERS ON WRITING #14: David Ireland

I don't live or die by whether things are published, I live or die by whether I want to keep writing, whether I am able to get up in the morning and write.  That's what I do, seven days a week, I get to my desk and work, and try to think.  I love it.

Interview in The Australian by STEPHEN ROMEI (7 April 2012)

DAVID IRELAND (b. 1927 in Lakemba, NSW) is one of only four authors to have won Australia's most prestigious literary prize, The Miles Franklin Award, more than once.  He has been unable to find a publisher for his work since his tenth, poorly-reviewed novel, The Chosen, appeared in 1997.
