"You might think that a well known writer in America would have some kind of celebrity but by comparison with, you know, sports figures and rock stars and actors and musicians and models and what have you, writers are really, really far down on the level of fame comparitively and they have an awesome amount of anonymity. I can walk down the street anywhere and not be recognized…because no one reads, no one reads, it’s as simple as that."

- Bret Easton Ellis
