Fitzgerald on writers

by on 30/03/11 at 7:00 am

Writers aren’t people exactly. Or, if they’re any good, they’re a whole lot of people trying so hard to be one person. It’s like actors, who try so pathetically not to look in mirrors. Who lean backward trying—only to see their faces in the reflecting chandeliers. — F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Last Tycoon
