What It’s Really Like

Somebody at the New York Times seems to have been shadowing my days here in The Garret:

Writing narrative nonfiction is grueling, lonely work haunted by the question of whether anyone will read the finished book. “You’re always worried, ‘Am I just banging my head against the wall?’ ” said Robert Whitaker…

Adds Garrison Keillor: “They are at work at computers, with books stacked on the floor, around them and on tables, and notes, legal pads, scribbles, index cards and
Post-it notes and a whole great, beautiful chaos of material, and they
are just trying to get the job done.”
