Joseph Epstein Quotes: While Reading Writers Of Great

While Reading Writers Of Great Formulatory Power - Henry James, Santayana, Proust - I Find I Can Scarcely Get Through A Page Without Having To Stop To Record Some Lapidary Sentence. Reading Henry James, For Example, I Have Muttered To Myself, "C'mon, Henry, Turn Down The Brilliance A Notch, So I Can Get Some Reading Done." I May Be One Of A Very Small Number Of People Who Have Developed Writer's Cramp While Reading.
