One time I met Tom Wolfe

Posted to Utterances




we were at a coctail party in Austin

he told me this:

"I always cringe when someone refers to me as a 'free lance writer'
it's something about those stories you see in the newspaper, mainly on Monday or Tuesday in the back pages, where the guy and the gal are busted in a motel room on the edge of town.
The girl is always a 'modern dancer'
and the guy is always a 'free lance writer.'"
