Writing Quote: Reviews Don't Help the Reviewed Author

You're always looking--and it's very foolish, it really would be better not to read the reviews--but you're always looking for some reviewer who will tell you something about your book that you didn't know yourself and at the same time that you think is true. And that very, very rarely happens.

Mary McCarthy in Conversations With Mary McCarthy, edited by Carol Gelderman, 1991
