"I remember taking a good class in English, with a good professor, and he said, "I can't imagine being you." What do you mean? He said, "Well, I went to college in the 50s. You could count all the books you needed to read on two hands." You read your Shakespeare, your Chaucer, read the moderns, maybe you read a couple Russians, couple French, couple translated Germans, you know. And by the time you were 20 you had a good sense of literature. And by the time you're 21 you can read contemporary, 22, contemporary, 23, contemporary, and you're riding the wave. Now, I'm 35, I'm an avid reader, I'm still reading backwards, still getting my groundwork to get on top of the wave. Still too many books come out every week to pay attention to. If the fat TV lady doesn't recommend it who knows if it's even gonna get sent to the book store.
