Literary Birthday – 3 January – Ken Bruen


Happy Birthday, Ken Bruen, born 3 January 1951

Seven Quotes

  1. There’ll be times when the only refuge is books. Then you’ll read as if you meant it, as if your life depended on it.
  2. It seems the more I write the deeper my anger as I delve more into the Banks, the church, the so called rulers and shakers. All rotten to the noir core.
  3. It’s said the difference between one friend and none is infinity.
  4. For me, it’s about having strong characters that can stand up to most things a writer will throw at them. That’s the way I like to go about it.
  5. Your life is in some bizarre state when priests are throwing abuse at you on the street.
  6. I could have papered me flat in rejection slips, at least 20 right off the bat.
  7. She obviously had disappointing news in her teens and wasn’t yet recovered.
