Novelist James Jones on Writing and Writers

"I do think that the quality which makes a man want to write and be read is essentially a desire for self-exposure and is masochistic. Like one of those guys who has a compulsion to take his thing out and show it on the street."

—James Jones (1921-1977), author of "From Here To Eternity"
