“My novel is at an impasse. In fact it has been at one for as long as I can remember. Before Christmas I couldn’t stand it any longer so I began a short story. It’s like escaping from the penitentiary. It may well be that I’ll have another book of stories before I have a novel. I work from such a basis of poverty that everything I do is a miracle to me. However, don’t think I write for purgation. I write because I write well.”
