Personal Quote:

Becoming a writer is not a "career decision" like becoming a doctor or a policeman. You don't choose it so much as get chosen, and once you accept the fact that you're not fit for anything else, you have to be prepared to walk a long, hard road for the rest of your days.

Trivia:

A major portion of Auster's 2013 memoir, "Report From the Interior", includes detailed, scene-by-scene summaries of two films he believes deliver "blows to the head": _The Incredible Shrinking Man (1957)_ qv) and _I Am a Fugitive From a Chain Gang (1932)_. See more »
