10-second review: People are bastards. Taylor Caldwell.
Quote: “A writer has got to be a cynic. You’ve got to look at life clearly. No rose-colored glasses. The human race is not very admirable. It was a big mistake of God’s…. I think I appeal to readers because there’s nothing false or hypocritical in what I write. And they recognize themselves, they recognize their fears. And they know what bastards they are.” Taylor Caldwell. 1980 Yearbook, . 145.
