To Dream and to Write

Hanif Kureishi's excellent article on being an author in the Zeitgeist, writing for a living, and footing bills with the commission! One of the best reads I've had today (notwithstanding the fact that all that I did read today was Dryden's Essay on Dramatic Poesy and few very sensational news items from a newspaper which makes a living out of sensationalism). To know what Kureishi thinks comprises the "art" of writing, one has to access The Independent Books website from this link, published at a day when Kureishi confesses (in another place) how he has enjoyed the performance of his My Beautiful Laundrette at the Stag in Victoria, London.

Gosh, I sound like a reporter now! Have to work on that.
