From the Artist: From a letter, 1996:
I wasn't a captive, or a prisoner of war (at least not in the physical sense, though a lot of us have been prisoners in other ways). Every spare moment not given over to daily life is spent in the hell of remarkable memories, whose accuracy is terrifying....
Everyone should know this with certainty: there is no peace with honor.
