Jim Crace, whose Being Dead is a TEV favorite, announces his plans to stop writing fiction.
Most writers would say that they are driven to write and know no way to fill their time or make sense of the world. Crace is amused by their presumption. "My belief is that I will be quite happy not writing. JD Salinger once said, 'You've got no idea the peace of writing and not publishing,' but I am going to go one better and find the peace of not writing and not publishing. I'm looking forward to it."
