#Quote
1Years ago, manhood was an opportunity for achievement, and now it's a problem to be overcome.
2[summarizing a proposed film project] It's got a funeral, it's got a big Fourth of July parade and, you know, two people taking each other's clothes off. Everything we look for in a movie.
3I think the most un-American thing you can say is "You can't say that".
4When you're in your 20s, your 30s, even, you have - at least, I had - vast ambitions, and you sit around mooning about these things, and you're depressed, because you haven't done them. And it takes you a long time to come to the realization that if you can't be John Updike, well, then, you can't. If you can't be Philip Roth, then don't. So you'll do this other thing instead. And maybe you'll be writing the very thing that John Updike and Philip Roth wish to hell they could. They're neither of them particularly funny; maybe that's what they've always wanted to do.
5I love New York, and I'm drawn to a certain intensity of life, but I've just never felt like I want to escape from the Midwest. A writer lives a great deal in his own head, and so one intuitively finds places where your head is more clear. New York for me is one of those places.
6I am in favor of corruption so long as it makes people truly happy. And so long as somebody writes a good confessional memoir like John Dean's "Blind Ambition."
7I've wanted to be a writer since I was a boy, though it seemed an unlikely outcome since I showed no real talent. But I persevered and eventually found my own row to hoe. Ignorance of other writers' work keeps me from discouragement and I am less well-read than the average bus driver.
8A lovely thing about Christmas is that it's compulsory, like a thunderstorm, and we all go through it together.
9Sex is good, but not as good as fresh sweet corn.
10I believe in looking reality straight in the eye and denying it.
11Cats are intended to teach us that not everything in nature has a function.
