Doris Lessing Puts It All into Perspective

Thought I'd share this brilliant item from "Along Publisher's Row," the wonderful odds & ends column featured in each issue of the Authors Guild Bulletin:

Before she became a Nobel Laureate, Doris Lessing wrote, "And it does no harm to repeat, as often as you can, 'Without me the literary industry would not exist: the publishers, the agents, the sub-agents, the sub-sub-agents, the accountants, the libel lawyers, the departments of literature, the professors, the theses, the books of criticism, the reviewers, the book pages--all this vast and proliferating edifice is because of this small, patronized, put-down and underpaid person."

Well, out hat's off to you today, Doris Lessing, for putting it all into perspective. Nicely said!
