As Long As Your Boss Isn't Looking Over Your Shoulder

In this profile, William Vollmann is asked if he thought an office job could be good for a writer. His reply: "To the extent that the writer can borrow the means of production, the desk and the paper. Being a writer seems to work well with being at a desk. If you can work in there, the office can be helpful, and also you have the sense of reclaiming a bit of your own life from a miserable, deadening existence."
