People who write about death call it the ultimate taboo, but it is amazing how many authors writing on aging say that death has to be confronted, before one can truly live. Jilly Cooper, says that sex is a difficult area for her to write about…..There are a limited number of ways………. Harrumph, think I shan’t go there. I prefer waterfalls, surf on beaches, meeting of souls and other hackneyed but well loved metaphors.
Actually, I find writing (or reading) about violence the hardest thing. And yet I love detective novels.
