Personal Quote:

I'm not enamoured of the whole Hemingway-Fitzgerald bullshit that consumes American idolatry of writers. I think Hemingway's an awful writer. And why did those two write their best novels when they were 27? Because they were drunks. If I'd written my best novel at the age of 27, what sort of pig would I be? See more »
