All (good) writers write about death, or the dead. I think that's the only common thing they have. There comes a time in every conscious human being's life when he realizes that this life is not enough. As Brian Eno has put it: ”I just keep getting the feeling of 'There must be something else' or 'There must be more than this'.” I think it's only logical, and natural, that all good writers eventually end up writing about death. It's the only really interesting subject.
