  1. ‘As soon as you start writing, even if it is under your real name, you start to function as somebody slightly different, as a “writer”. You establish from yourself to yourself continuities and a level of coherence which is not quite the same as your real life… All this ends up constituting a kind of neo-identity which is not identical to your identity as a citizen or your social identity, Besides you know this very well, since you want to protect your private life.’
    Michel Foucault, (2004) ‘Je suis un artificier’. In Roger-Pol Droit, ed., Michel Foucault, entretiens Paris: Odile Jacob. p. 106.
