Lionel Shriver: “I try neither to be cowed by big names, nor to succumb to the pathetic illusion that by trouncing accomplished writers I make myself superior to them. I always read the entire book. And my naiveté – my refusal to think twice about alienating a colleague who down the line might help or hurt me – may make me a fool, but it also makes me fairer.” (via The Literary Saloon)
