Maggie Nelson, interview [US]:
Jane Carr: In the book [Jane: A Murder], you re-examine, and revive the life and death of your aunt, talk about her death in the midst of a notorious killing spree. What drove you to write the collection now? Does it indicate a development in your relationship to Jane's memory, or to your relationship with yourself?

Maggie Nelson: The short answer is that I've been working on it a long time, because actually the first four pieces in the book were written when I was 22. And I had been doing a bunch of different kinds of writing and a lot of it was circulating around these dreams, or hauntings about being shot. Honestly, it sounds disingenuous, but I literally didn't really know that I was writing about my aunt for a long time. It just didn't really quite occur to me. And then when it did, and I realized, then I started doing the research. And I wasn't really writing a lot during the research, I was just researching. I guess you could say I've been working on it, in and out, all through my adult life. And then it was in the past couple of years that I gathered enough that it really made sense to sit down and dig it out.
