"Any creative encounter with evil requires that we do not simple distance ourselves from it by demonising those who commit evil acts. In order to write about evil, a writer has to comprehend it, from the inside out; to understand the perpetrators and not necessarily empathise with them. But Americans seem to have a very difficult time recognising that there is a distinction between understanding and empathising. Somehow we believe that an attempt to inform ourselves about what leads to evil is an attempt to explain it away. I believe that the opposite is true, and that when it comes to coping with evil, ignorance is our worst enemy." -Kathleen Norris
