Jess Walter Quote

by Nicole Trilivas

“Now, after writing several of these things, I can safely say that when a writer claims to have spent fifteen years on a novel, there’s a good chance that what he means is that he managed to squeeze in two or three years of writing during fifteen years of drinking and self-loathing.”

-Jess Walter (who goes on to say that writing the amazing Beautiful Ruins took him fifteen years)
