Richard Price on the surprise of getting a hand-written letter.
Question: How has technology changed the way you work and live?
Richard Price: For one thing, David Mamet wrote me a letter about two weeks ago and it was handwritten and other than the fact that it was from David Mamet, I realized it was the first time I’ve gotten a handwritten letter in about three years. I’ve always handwritten all my books. I finally switched over to using a laptop and the danger of a laptop is it’s too easy to fool around and move things around and do this and that. You’ve been very busy for three hours but you really haven’t done a thing. When you work with handwriting, it’s too labor intensive to go back. So I think it all evens out in the wash.
