I still can't believe I won the Olympics. That's what I feel right now - completely alive as a human being. It's a really beautiful moment.
Things with my dad were pretty good until I won an Academy Award. He was really loving to me until I got more attention than he did. Then he hated me.
Even if I hadn't have been nominated for an Oscar, to have won the Golden Glove was just fantastic.

To have been able to write the books I wanted to write, on demanding subjects like war and the history of psychiatry, and for them to have sold in the numbers they have - and then go around saying: 'Actually, I'd also like to have won the Costa Book of the Year?' That would be ridiculous.
