Jean Royer's role here is similar to a translator's, where confidences and revelations from the artists he has talked to are translated into these texts he calls 'interviews to literature.' He polishes, he evaluates, he chooses, he animates -- in short, doing what a translator does to make the translated text into a reality in its own right, separate from yet intimately linked to the original. The texts here allow us to see the artists not only in their guarded moments but especially in their unguarded, relaxed moments when we get a glimpse of the private person, the inner being it is a privilege to discover. -- Daniel Sloate
