Carol Shields (b. June 2): “I couldn’t have been a novelist without being a mother…”

2 Jun


“I couldn’t have been a novelist without being a mother. It gives you a unique witness point of the growth of a personality. It was a kind of biological component for me that had to come first. My children gave this other window on the world.”

~ Carol Shields, b. 02 June 1935
