More from E. L. Doctorow

“The writer isn't made in a vacuum. Writers are witnesses. The reason we need writers is because we need witnesses to this terrifying century.”
“Writing is immensely difficult. The short forms especially.”
“One of the things I had to learn as a writer was to trust the act of writing. To put myself in the position of writing to find out what I was writing.”
