Resonant Thoughts: Bill Buford’s “Dirt” (2020)



“I wondered: Is creativity more easily expressed in rigorous structures?”

“You learn the old stuff before you try the new stuff.
You learn the old stuff in order to do the new stuff.
The old stuff is not easy.
You are not yet good enough to be creative.
A recipe is only an introduction. It is the beginning of your relationship with the dish.”

– Bill Buford, Dirt (2020)
