The Secret Documents
A writer takes a certain risk when he invites his readers
to examine his secret archives, like a reporter opening up his notebook. Why
did I focus on this event and ignore that one? Stress one aspect and play down
another? Because that's the way I saw it. When you read my book, you're invited
inside my head, which is stuffed with history, interviews, memories, and my
personal prejudices. When you look at my sources, you watch the world alongside
me and are certain to see it differently. So these archives may be the spine
of the story, but not the flesh.
