Michael Lewis:

To me the biggest corrupting influence in this country in the production of literature and journalism is the attempt to make it an academic subject’the creative writing classes, journalism schools. That’s the wrong approach. It’s an attempt to establish a career path for writers. And also to take the risk out of it and say if you do X, Y, and Z, then you get this plum. I think the best stuff is done by lone rangers.
