Writers on the Scale of Fame
To us, the bookish sorts, writers of a certain stature can definitely seem famous. But every once in a while, there’s a comment or an article that shows you just how far down the rung of celebrity writers are.
Here’s an interesting article about Jon Ronson, author of the novel, The Men Who Stare at Goats upon which the recent George Clooney film is based. Ronson describes going to the premiere and being overwhelmed by the crowd. And then realizing his place in the whole event.
“There is something oddly sobering about walking up a red carpet surrounded by thousands of people only to realise not one is screaming for you,” Ronson said in the piece.
