A writer in time

I don't know if what I write are novels, and names don't seem to matter. I quicken at the apprehension of some human drama that is affected by time, and feel the need to find words for what would otherwise remain wordless.
Gabriel Josipovici tells Tamar Yellin what draws him above all to fiction.
[It] has something to do with time, with how human beings respond to time, with what time does to us, the losses it brings, and the sense of possibilities unrealized, but also the Proustian sense of sudden loops in time and the way our lives are sealed off to us but suddenly, in time, open up momentarily.
