Quote of the Day
If the truth be told, I think it is just as noble and in fact probably a lot nobler to be a good plumber [than a writer]. Because I’ve done seventy books, people go, “God, you’re so prolific.” And I say, “What do you mean prolific? I’ve been doing it for forty-two years, and I’ve done seventy books. That’s what I do. It’s a full time job. If I were a plumber, and I had unclogged ten thousand toilets, would you say to me, ‘You’re a prolific plumber?'” No, people just don’t equate the two, but I gotta tell you, when your toilet overflows, you do not need Dostoyevsky to come into your house.
