Quotable: Graham Greene on writers and privacy

“Writing is the most private of all the arts, and yet few of us hesitate to invade the writer’s home. We have all heard of that one caller from Porlock, but hundreds of callers every day are ringing doorbells, lifting receivers, thrusting themselves into the secret room where a writer works and lives.”

— Graham Greene, from “A Visit to Morin”
