‘A Beautiful Mind’ author Michael Crichton has ‘never written anything of the sort’
Michael Crachton has said that he has never written a book about himself.
Crichton was speaking at a charity dinner for the Children’s Hospital of Queensland at Sydney’s Royal Botanic Gardens.
“I have never written anything about myself,” he said.
“You know, I don’t think I’ve ever written a letter about myself, you know, you might say, ‘Well, maybe you’re just a writer,’ but I’ve never written about myself.”
It’s just not the way to write.
“He said he was “shocked” when he read the New York Times’ profile of him, which included a photo of him standing next to a man he identified as the late film critic John McTiernan, and asked, “Why?
“He said his life had “changed dramatically” since he began writing about himself in the 1990s.
Crachton said he had previously struggled to deal with the idea of self-absorption and that he was no longer comfortable in public spaces.”
My life has changed dramatically in the last 20 years, and it’s hard to describe, because I’m not a very sociable person,” he told the audience.”
Nowadays, I feel I’m more comfortable in the library, I’ve found a little bit more solitude, and I feel that I’ve really found my niche, because of my work and my work in the world.
“And I guess that’s something that I feel a bit more comfortable doing.”
