Most of them never even went to college.  (American Writer Quotes) Our everyday language has become encumbered, Germanic, artificial, bureaucratic, inorganic. It may not be exaggerated to say that by now American writers face but two alternatives: write English, or write gobbledygook.  (American Writer Quotes) The American writer is a very pampered figure - by foundations, by fellowships, by publishing advances.

My favorite writer is Jonathan Franzen, and my favorite writers of short fiction are George Saunders and Alice Munro.  (American Writer Quotes) If you just sit there, and you’re a writer, you’re bound to write crap. A lot of American writing is crap. And a lot of American writers are professionals.  (American Writer Quotes) I want people to read good work.

My region is the American West, old Mexico, West Virginia, New York, Europe, Australia, the human heart, and the male groin  (American Writer Quotes) The task of an American writer is not to describe the misgivings of a woman taken in adultery as she looks out of a window at the rain but to describe four hundred people under the lights reaching for a foul ball.
