Novelist (and former "Jeopardy" champion?) Arthur PhillipsJan 16 2008

Novelist (and former "Jeopardy" champion?) Arthur Phillips talks to Robert Birnbaum:

RB: I haven't managed to read writers who I now see as cultish-Proust and Wodehouse.

AP: I have enjoyed him enormously. I don't know that I'd read all 95 or 150 or 300 books or whatever it is-

RB: There's an example of productivity or hypergraphia.

AP: There is a famous story-I'm going to get the details wrong, but he was in New York for a while and someone asked if he was hanging out at the Algonquin and he said, "I don't know how those guys get any work done." That's the problem with Brooklyn-you have to really try not to meet other writers.
