Thought for the day ...

I have Graham Greene's telephone number, but I wouldn't dream of using it. I don't seek out writers because we all want to be alone.
- Patricia Highsmith, born on this date in 1921


  1. Reminds me of the time I tried calling you, Frank, and you wrote me saying that you would rather we communicate on email :)

  2. Having sat beside an almost continuously ringing phone for eight years (when I was book editor), I could live without ever hearing one ring again.
