from the lives they lived, fran lebowitz on toni morrison:

She loved crime. She was very interested in criminal cases. We watched the trial of the Menéndez brothers while on the phone every single day for six months. It was in L.A., so it started at noon on the East Coast. I felt very guilty watching it, because I was supposed to be writing a book, but I would say to myself, “Well, Toni does it, so I’m sure it’s fine.” Of course, that was before I knew that Toni got up at 5 in the morning, so, by noon, she had already done a full day’s work.
