Jon McGregor's Difficulties

While one waits for Jon McGregor's new novel to make its way into one's hands, here's a terse, ironic interview with the author:

"As a writer, what would you say are the biggest challenges that you face?

Being original -- being worth reading. Keeping the same burning drive and ambition which I had before anyone had bought any of my books. Mastering the semi-colon.

Which aspects of the work that you put into the book did you find most difficult?

The writing."
