Jim Shepard
printer friendly version
It's so clear that in Europe there's a different appreciation
of the writer. They'll say: "We're having a panel discussion
about an international crisis; let's ask a poet." It's hard to
imagine anyone asking me to go on TV in the States to talk
about school shootings. They'd talk to a psychologist,
maybe a cop. But a novelist? They'd say: "But he wrote
made-up stuff."

(Los Angeles Times, Oct. 27, 2004)
