Michael Cunningham
Writer's Parents
printer friendly version
I realized when I started publishing that [my parents] had
mixed feelings about having produced a child unhappy enough
to write novels. If you are an accountant or a doctor, your
parents are never confronted with your pain or sorrow,
unless you tell them about it. But as a novelist, your parents,
if they read your books, see that you haven't been happy
every minute -- and who can be?

(Interview in Stanford Magazine, January/February 2006)
