Edmund White at Flip

One of the cool writers that I listened to at Flip (The International Literature Festival of Parati) was Edmund White.
I liked the honest way he spoke about his characters, his creative process, how he thought he didn’t care about the gay community and critics, etc.
But my favorite part was when he was talking about his mother when he asked her if she believed in free will or determinism she answered “a little bit of both, son”. For some reason it felt good to know that there are more people that believe in both.

No point in writing if you care about the critics, there will always be someone who doesn't like what you say...
