ACROSS THE AGES

Finweek English Edition - - LIFE -

MILLER ON LIFE AWAY FROM

THE KEY­BOARD: “Writ­ing is the lens through which I ex­pe­ri­ence the world. This can be a good and a bad thing. One has to be care­ful not to re­treat into the world of writ­ing en­tirely. There is much life to be lived away from the key­board.” MILLER ON THE VALUE OF

ART: “Writ­ing, art and the sciences are the way we talk to each other over space and time, and across the bar­ri­ers of death and age. We leave mes­sages for peo­ple who will only be born in 200 years’ time, through the arts – just like those born 200 years be­fore us left us mes­sages. I’ve al­ways found this to be a pretty in­cred­i­ble thing.”
