I'm going to be a writer.

»A conversation with My Mother:
Patience, Caution and Art.

›But do you really think you can be an artist in a country like this and still keep your pride? To be accepted by people, who understand nothing of art, to get these people to buy your work, you'd have to toady to the state, to the rich, and worst of all, to semiliterate journalists. Do you think you're up to this?‹

›I don't want to be an artist‹, I said. ›I'm going to be a writer.‹«
