To kind of go through life not caring is a spectacular attribute. It's one I wish I had. .

Neil Cross Quotes about life
#113371 Neil Cross

It's perceived as an accolade to be published as a 'literary' writer, but, actually, it's pompous and it's fake. Literary fiction is often nothing more than a genre in itself. .

Neil Cross Quotes about fiction
#113372 Neil Cross

People often express surprise that I'm not a psychopath. But it's not about what I want to do to other people, it's that I'm scared of what other people might do to me. .

Neil Cross Quotes about people
#113373 Neil Cross

The thematic bucket of vomit that I've been chained to since I was about 9 is the moral complexity of anti-heroism. I have always been interested in good people who do bad things for understandable reasons. .

I had a complicated life until I was 25. I was born in Bristol and was brought up by my mum and my stepfather in Edinburgh. He introduced me to books. .

Neil Cross Quotes about life
#113375 Neil Cross

I love to see heroes who fuel some kind of moral furnace inside them, who are driven to take on the evils of the world, despite the fact that the evils of the world are more powerful than them. And essentially can never be defeated, but they refuse to bow down. And in order to enjoy that aspect of the hero, you've got to put them through hell. .

Neil Cross Quotes about love
#113376 Neil Cross

What I love about Indiana Jones is he always bites off slightly more than he can chew. The guy he's fighting is always slightly tougher than he is, but he just refuses to give up. And that's what makes Indiana Jones a hero: not his superpowers, but his refusal to be beaten. .

Neil Cross Quotes about love
#113377 Neil Cross

I'd always read omnivorously and often thought much literary fiction is read by young men and women in their 20s as substitutes for experience. .

Neil Cross Quotes about women
#113378 Neil Cross

I love ghost stories, and I also have a great fondness and love for 'Quatermass,' which in many ways is the show that preceded 'Doctor Who.' 'Doctor Who' borrowed quite a bit from 'Quatermass' and probably wouldn't have existed in anything like the form we recognise today if 'Quatermass' hadn't come before it. .

Neil Cross Quotes about love
#113379 Neil Cross

I wrote 'Mr. In-Between' very quickly when I was about 23. I wrote the penultimate chapter, then realised I'd done something which was written to the best of my abilities. I panicked. I hesitated to finish the final chapter and went into withdrawal for three years. I decided to pick it up again after I went drinking with author Tim Binding. .

Neil Cross Quotes about author
#113380 Neil Cross

'Luther' is absolutely a monster-of-the-week show. Although it's post-watershed and is rendered in intense graphic novel-style images, it's inspiration is not that different from 'Doctor Who' as in both cases you've got a trickster figure who fights the monster of the week and is eventually successful. .

I am very interested in theology. In fact, my first degree was in theology, so it's something that interests me greatly. .

Neil Cross Quotes about fiction
#113383 Neil Cross

#113384 Neil Cross

I don't get on with novelists, don't enjoy their company. Once you've worked for a publisher, you understand the species, see them in their natural habitat, and it's not always pretty. .

Neil Cross Quotes about joy
#113385 Neil Cross

I was writing novels at eight. It was a science fiction epic, which went by the unimprovable title of 'Another Kind of Warrior.' I'd write it beginning to end, but when I'd finished it, I was another year older. The quality of writing and thought changed radically, so I'd start it again. I re-wrote that same book until I was 16. .
