"First of all I admire and respect women. I think they are very noble and their life experience and the hardship a woman can endure is always much greater than a man. When we encounter great disasters women are always more brave than men – I think because they have their due capacity, they are also mothers. The strength that this brings is something we can’t imagine. In my books I try to put myself in the shoes of women, I try to understand and interpret this world from the perspective of women."
