A One Question Interview with Carole Maso

It’s a beautiful September Friday in Providence. Clear, sunny, a little chilly, and brand new trapper keepers are blowing through the streets. Take a walk, writers! And while you do, think about these words from Carole Maso.


Carole, beyond–or perhaps extending from–the physical act of pen to paper, or finger to key, what does it mean to write?

To write is to fall prostrate at the altar of the unsayable.  A place one gets to ponder the great mysteries–not to tame them, or understand them, but to be close to them.


Carole Maso is the author of ten books including, Mother and Child, Ava, The Art Lover, and Defiance. She teaches at Brown University.

Let us know what you think.
