The Short Form

Donna Tartt from the Guardian

Donna Tartt on being a slow writer:

People say that perfectionism is bad, but it's because of perfectionists that man walked on the moon and painted the Sistine Chapel, OK? Perfectionism is good. It's all about production and economy these days. I don't want to be the CEO of a corporation, of Donna Tartt Inc. I work the way I've always worked, and I don't want a big desk and fancy office and people answering the telephone.
