“It's easier to write about pain than about joy. Joy is wordless.”

More from Erica Jong

“What a damnably lonely profession writing is! In order to do it, one must banish the world, and having banished it, one feels cosmically alone.”
“I believe that there's a force of life in the universe, and that when we're writing or making music or painting, we're likely to connect with that flow.”
“The only rule I have when writing is to try to tell the truth. That doesn't mean you can't exaggerate, edit, rewrite things to make them more dramatic. But emotional truth is what I look for in writing.”
