No time for novels, harumph

I have no patience with minutiae. I have spent my life cutting through trivia, getting to the core of a story. Maybe this is why I have read, from beginning to end, only two long novels in my lifetime: Gone with the Wind and Dr. Zhivago.
Leon Jaworski with Mickey Herskowitz, Confession and Avoidance: A Memoir (Garden City, NY: Anchor Press/Doubleday, 1979), p. 3, quoted in Jack Hamann, On American Soil: How Justice Became a Casualty of World War II (Chapel Hill, NC: Algonquin Books of Chapel Hill, 2005), p. ____.
