A Writing Quote From E. L. Doctorow

We lost an amazing writer today. E.L. Doctorow is best known for the towering “Ragtime,” (all authors are best known by the works that got made into movies) although I prefer Billy Bathgate (great book, terrible movie) and Book of Daniel. Here’s a link to a tribute from the Chicago Tribune.

One of my favorite writers, E.L. Doctorow.

“(Writers) propose life as something of moral consequence. They distribute suffering so that it can be borne.”
