Quote of the Day (Meghan Daum, on Writing on One’s Self vs. Syria)

“Non-fiction about personal subjects is going to attract more user comments than a foreign correspondent writing from Syria –unfortunately. Unless the foreign correspondent is writing about loving his cat more than his wife.” —Essayist Meghan Daum, quoted in Joanna Scutts, “Meghan Daum: 'I Don't Confess in My Work –That Implies Guilt,” The Guardian (U.K.), Nov. 18, 2014
