"I felt guilty and thought can I write about this? I'm not homeless. But I thought there is no typical homeless story, it can be as imaginative as possible [...] Some people end up on the streets because of mental health problems and it gets worse, and some don't have a mental health problem but they develop one due to isolation and lack of esteem. It's a vicious circle, that's the part that really got me; I thought I have to say something about this."

- Pat Kinevane, in interview
