On Giving Up

"I mostly write out of disgust and dissatisfaction. I want a beautiful life but I’m stuck in this Garbage World with you people. Very slowly, I’m figuring out I probably should not waste any more time on writing. It seems increasingly passive and banal, the whole exercise." —An interview with writer and self-help guru Ken Layne.

"writer and self-help guru": And, of course, former Awl contributor and one of the best writers working today, if he happens to be working today.

The tag is charming.

I've always liked Ken Layne…on politics, the environment, travel, family, whatever. He's just really good.

Read his novel and thank me later when your brain and heart are bigger and better than they are right now:
