• Profiled in The Guardian, Lorrie Moore talks about the benefits of having a husband who doesn’t pay too much attention to what his wife writes:
Moore says that her ex-husband, who she was with for 14 years, wasn’t that fussed. “That was one of the positive things about him. It was easy to be a writer around him. Like, right now, I’m seeing somebody else and that’s not easy, because he’s scouring the work for signs of him. But my husband never really did that. It’s good to have someone who is mildly interested and mildly proud, and also slightly uninterested. When I was in graduate school, I had a teacher who said to me, women writers should marry somebody who thinks writing is cute.” She smiles. “Because if they really realised what writing was, they would run a mile.”
It’s a good profile — not so much because it’s revealing, although I suppose it is, but because it will make you want to go re-read all your Lorrie Moore.
