Alice Birch is profiled in The New York Times

“My writing has always been much louder than I am,” she said over coffee downstairs, in a cafe looking onto Central Park. “I consider myself incredibly lucky to have that space to be so noisy and to say the things that I feel passionate about. I don’t think I would stand up and say those things necessarily. I don’t think I would have the confidence to.”
