“You had to write a NOVEL to talk yourself out of having a third child?”

“Raymond Carver is worshipped by young male writers, but he was a terrible father and a terrible, terrible husband. He nearly killed his wife with a broken wine bottle! She almost bled to death! But no one cared. They just talked about what a fantastic brilliant writer he was. And he was a fantastic brilliant writer. But take, for example, Sylvia Plath…people don’t separate her life from her work as much.”
—Paula Bomer literally never stops saying thought-provoking things in this interview about her new book, Nine Months, available via Emily Books, a service without which I might forget to read altogether.
