“I mean the beauty of being a writer is it’s not like being a swimmer. When they were talking about our Olympic swimmers and they’d say, ‘Oh she’s so old,’ and she’s all of 25 or something. So the beauty for a writer is that you can keep doing it right into your dotage, and I hope to be able to keep doing it as long as I can get away with it, yeah.”
