Personal Quote:

I believe in the power of the imagination to remake the world, to release the truth within us, to hold back the night, to transcend death, to charm motorways, to ingratiate ourselves with birds, to enlist the confidences of madmen. See more »

His novel "Empire of the Sun" (1984), which was turned in to a film of the same name in 1987, was semi-autobiographical. He was interned in a Japanese prison camp near Shanghai during World War II, although he was not separated from his parents as depicted in the book and film. See more »
