"Imagine Pulitzer prize-fighting."
~ Steven Wright
Today the nation will go about its Sunday business, some to worship, some to work, some to garage sales, some to the crossword puzzle. But in Brooklyn, the borough of churches and novelists, local authors will take part in a new annual ritual. Covering their writerly bristles in a fine cloak of camaraderie, they will head to the Brooklyn Book Festival, where they will meet the enemy and celebrate their calling.
“When a writer talks about his work, he's talking about a love affair.”
~ Alfred Kazin
“Asking a writer what he thinks about critics is like asking a lamp post
how it feels about dogs.”
~ Ann Landers
