    • 2000 January, Frank McCourt (interviewee), Morning Edition, National Public Radio
      It's not like a Russian novel, where you read nine hundred forty-three pages and then finally Boris the peasant decides to commit suicide, and you wish he’d done it on page four. It’s not like that at all.
