Exploring Family Trauma in "My Name is Lucy Barton" [newyorker.com]

By Alexandra Schwartz, The New Yorker, January 20, 2020 On the subject of his vocation, Philip Roth liked to quote Czeslaw Milosz: “When a writer is born into a family, that family is finished.” It’s a great aphorism, pithy and cavalier, as emphatic as a gunshot.

That, anyway, is...
