Meg Wolitzer

Meg Wolitzer says: “I am a fiction writer who, like most writers, is happiest when I’m working. I have somewhat erratic work habits, and can go for weeks without producing much, then suddenly find myself in a whirlwind of productivity that lasts a long time and occupies most of my waking hours. Between those productive bouts I tend to read a lot, mostly contemporary novels, an activity that serves as a kind of refueling that I seem to need. I love being excited and keyed up by other people’s novels; the best of them remind me of how powerful fiction can be.”
