Maurice Gee on sentences

March 23, 2011

Maurice Gee

“Gee says his main problem is ‘making sentences work.  Too often in my writing they come flying in your face like bits of gravel.  I am aware of having to stop my sentences from breaking down.  Sentences open up so many possibilities – often they want to change direction half-way through.”

pp115-116 Greg O’Brien and Robert Cross (1988) Moments of Invention; Portraits of 21 New Zealand Writers. Heinemann Reed: Auckland.
