Famous Writers And Their Other Jobs

Not all writers make money from writing alone. Certainly it is possible! But many of the authors on your bookshelf have jobs—real, boring, non-writerly, totally-unromantic jobs. Others of them used to have those jobs, until fame and fortune conspired to keep them writing and reading and smoking and thinking and day-drinking full time  (that’s how it works, right? I think it must be).  Michelle Dean compiled a list of some famous authors’ day jobs for The Rumpus.  My favorite detail from the list is that J.D. Salinger once worked as a cruise entertainment director. What a gig.
