Book Fight!

Tough love for literature


Writers Ask: Marry Rich

What are the best jobs for writers? What’s with writers who don’t like to read? And why does it make Mike so mad when people talk about literature like it’s a commodity? We also discuss naps, and why Tom lives like an old person. Talking points include: back to school, John Gardner’s On Becoming a Novelist, Type-A doctors, night watchmen, revolution, and sleeping on planes.
