Quote of the Day (J. Courtney Sullivan, on Being From a Large Irish-Catholic Family)

“I come from a very large Irish Catholic family. People have asked me if I’ve been disowned for writing Maine [a novel about a large Irish Catholic family], but on the contrary...I honestly think my books would not have become bestsellers if not for the copies my extended family members purchased. They helped me sell the most Girl Scout cookies in Massachusetts one year—just the same with books, really.[Laughs]”—J. Courtney Sullivan, author of Maine and The Engagements, quoted in Stephan Lee, “The Books of My Life,” Entertainment Weekly, Fall Movie Preview 2013
