That explains it, then

  • The Paris Review: Is there anything else you can say to beginning writers?
  • Georges Simenon: I think that everyone who does not need to be a writer, who thinks he can do something else, ought to do something else. Writing is not a profession but a vocation of unhappiness. I don’t think an artist can ever be happy.
  • From the Art of Fiction #9, Georges Simenon

From Caroline Hirsch at the Photo Booth: “Reading this week’s fiction piece, Julian Barnes’s ‘Homage to Hemingway,’  brought back memories of growing up in Miami, where my best friend had a  six-toed cat named Tina—short for Ernestina, and purportedly a  descendant of one of Hemingway’s Key West cats—and led me to discover a treasure trove of Hemingway photographs at the JFK Library. Here are some of my favorites.”
