The Writing Gap

Today's Post has an interview with author Marilynne Robinson who wrote a book (Housekeeping), took a 23 year break, and then came back with the Pulitzer Prize winning Gilead, and most recently, Home.

Interestingly, in Susan Shreve's Advanced Workshop class we were asked to think about the authors in our "club" - the authors we turn to when we're stuck, when we need inspiration or motivation, and when we just want to have a good time reading. Among the names that came up were McEwan, Chabon, Cheever, Bender, Hempel, and more.

And in Marilynne Robinson's camp? Calvin.

Go figure.
