Text Quotes
When you translate the American writers who are best with dialogue into German - someone like Elmore Leonard, or Tom Wolfe, who’s also quite good with dialogue. It’s very hard to translate them well.  (American Writers Quotes) It’s the tradition of American writers getting away in order to see the country - to get a better view.  (American Writers Quotes) I love contemporary North American fiction and short fiction. My favorite writer is Jonathan Franzen, and my favorite writers of short fiction are George Saunders and Alice Munro.  (American Writers 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 Writers Quotes) Some Native American writers enjoy being called Native American writers  (American Writers Quotes) Fear is the major cargo that American writers must stow away when the writing life calls them into carefully chosen ranks.  (American Writers Quotes) Offhand, the only North American writers I can think of who have come from a background of rural poverty and gone on to write about it have been Negroes.  (American Writers Quotes) The thing about American writers is that, as a group, they get stuck in the same idea: that we’re a continent and the world falls away after us. And it’s just nonsense.  (American Writers Quotes) The cultural decoding that many American writers require has become an even harder task in the age of globalisation. The experience they describe has grown more private; its essential background, the busy larger world, has receded.  (American Writers Quotes) Living in a cultural milieu where the foreign writers most widely available and admired were Russian, I came very late to postwar American writers, and I had great trouble with the canonically exalted white male writers I tried first.  (American Writers Quotes) For every Scott Fitzgerald concerned with the precise word and the selection of relevant incident, there are a hundred American writers, many well-regarded, who appear to believe that one word is just as good as another and that everything which occurs to them is worth putting down.  (American Writers Quotes) I have been definitely influenced more by Latin American writers than by any other type of writer. They are very close in terms of voice - their humor, their fatalism, their... well, that over-used term ‘magical realism.’ It’s a wonderful term that’s just been used so much, we don’t know what it means anymore.  (American Writers Quotes) Some major American publishing houses still seek work by foreign writers  (American Writers Quotes) Ironically, Latin American countries, in their instability, give writers and intellectuals the hope that they are needed.  (American Writers Quotes) Gore Vidal has been a friend of mine for years, and he’s one of the greatest writers in American history.  (American Writers Quotes) It was always a false assumption that white American writers cannot write novels about race unless they’re approaching it from a very oblique angle.  (American Writers Quotes) My generation of writers has been prone to premature illness and death, especially the women. When Black male writers meet it’s like a session of the American Diabetic Association.  (American Writers Quotes) My friend, Dennis Mathis, was reading Eastern European and Japanese experimental writers, and I brought the Latin American writers to his attention, so we exchanged books and bounced off one another.  (American Writers Quotes) When I went to college, I majored in American literature, which was unusual then. But it meant that I was broadly exposed to nineteenth-century American literature. I became interested in the way that American writers used metaphoric language, starting with Emerson.  (American Writers Quotes) You’d never know it from reading the rest of the Native writers, but Indians actually grew up with American pop culture.  (American Writers Quotes) Even [Ernst] Hemingway, perhaps the most intentionally non-political of American writers, became passionately partisan during the Spanish Civil War.  (American Writers Quotes) There’s something with the physical size of America... American writers can write about America and it can still feel like a foreign country  (American Writers Quotes) What has been forgotten is that there were major intellectual breakthroughs in the 1960s, thanks to North American writers of an older generation. There was a rupture in continuity, since most young people influenced by those breakthroughs did not enter the professions  (American Writers Quotes) Most American writers don’t get asked their opinion on current affairs, whereas in Europe and England, we still do. There are writers here who are the most sophisticated commentators, but they’re not asked. Like Don DeLillo, who sort of forecast most of the modern world before it happened  (American Writers Quotes) Painters, especially American painters since the Second World War, have been much more troubled, beset by formal perplexity, than American writers. Theyve been a laboratory for everybody  (American Writers Quotes) I love Truman Capote, Tennessee Williams, Flannery O’Connor. I read a lot of American writers  (American Writers Quotes) Sixty percent of all Indians live in urban areas, but nobody’s writing about them. They’re really an underrepresented population, and the ironic thing is very, very few of those we call Native American writers actually grew up on reservations, and yet most of their work is about reservations  (American Writers Quotes) I like terrific writing, but I also like a terrific story. My favorite books have both, and they’re by contemporary, commercial American writers  (American Writers Quotes) I do feel fortunate to have some knowledge of the great Latin American writers, including some that are probably not that well known in English. I’m thinking of Jose Maria Arguedas, whom I read when I was living in Lima, and who really impacted the way I viewed my country  (American Writers Quotes) I think there’s a growing courage among the younger generation of American writers. Because of the more superficial treatment of characters taking place in cinema, they have had to deal with that by digging deeper into who these people are  (American Writers Quotes)
