    Any artist should be grateful for a naïve grace which puts him beyond the need to reason elaborately.
    Saul Bellow (b. 1915)

    I think that New York is not the cultural center of America, but the business and administrative center of American culture.
    —Saul Bellow (b. 1915)

    The last publicized center of American writing was Manhattan. Its writers became known as the New York Intellectuals. With important connections to publishing, and universities, with access to the major book reviews, they were able to pose as the vanguard of American culture when they were so obsessed with the two Joes—McCarthy and Stalin—that they were to produce only two artists, Saul Bellow and Philip Roth, who left town.
    Ishmael Reed (b. 1938)
