Glamour? What Glamour?

"People have this mystifying idea that it's glamorous to be a writer," Francine Prose is quoted as saying in this piece. In the very same paragraph, we learn that the interview was conducted over sushi at a Japanese restaurant in Manhattan; that she was dressed all in black; that she returned from an appearance at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C., a few hours ago; and that she has a class to teach at the New School a few hours hence. Hey, one will take that over glamour any day.
