Why I Love P.G. Wodehouse and E.B. White

P. G. Wodehouse said, 'I believe there are two ways of writing novels. One is mine, making a sort of musical comedy without music and ignoring real life altogether; the other is going right deep down into life and not caring a damn … '

  • I have always felt that the first duty of a writer was to ascend - to make flights, carrying others along if you can manage it. To do this takes courage, even a certain conceit. ~ E.B. White
  • No one can write decently who is distrustful of the reader's intelligence or whose attitude is patronizing. ~ E. B. White
