Quotation of the Week: Charles Johnson

The following snippet appeared on Twitter last Saturday as a live-tweet from the Modern Language Association’s 2012 convention in Seattle. It comes from a session that was billed as “A Creative Conversation with Charles Johnson,” with Linda F. Selzer presiding.

Selzer: “You’ve written four novels.”
Johnson: “I’ve written ten novels. Published four.”

(Johnson, let us remember, has won the National Book Award for fiction, NEA and Guggenheim fellowships, and many other honors.)
