Maud Newton interviews Stephen Elliott

Maud Newton's interesting interview with Stephen Elliott reminds me that I must buy a copy of Happy Baby. The interview is full of interesting observations, but I single out for attention the closing lines, which really could be my motto:

"I do know that there aren't many good reasons for writing a novel except that you really want to. It's a very lonely pursuit, but when the urge hits it's strangely difficult to deny it, especially if you're childless, single, and lack material ambition."
