Quote of the Day (Linda Chen, on Quentin Tarantino, ‘Functional Illiterate’)

“His handwriting is atrocious. He’s a functional illiterate. I was averaging about 9,000 grammatical errors per page. After I would correct them, he would try to put back the errors, because he liked them.”—Linda Chen, who corrected and typed the screenplay for Pulp Fiction and later served as unit photographer on the film, on her motormouth, manic, mad employer, Quentin Tarantino, quoted in Mark Seal, “Cinema Tarantino: The Making of Pulp Fiction,” Vanity Fair, March 2013
