On Being a Novelist -- Francine Du Plessix Gray



I feel honored by yet undeserving of the appellation "novelist." I am merely a craftsperson, a cabinetmaker of texts and occasionally, I hope, a witness to our times.
    -- Francine Du Plessix Gray, "I Write for Revenge Against Reality", New York Times, September 12, 1982


I especially love the essay's title! I may not write for revenge, but definitely escape or pleasure...
