One of my favorite [TV] writers, Jane Espenson, writes about why she writes. Jane rules. I have no aspirations to be a television writer, but I still enjoy the way Espenson writes about it—as well as the actual TV shows and episodes she has helped create. In much the same way, I have no ambition to become a surgeon (as if!—besides, enough of my relatives have already taken up that career, and they know I admire them), but I greatly appreciate Richard Selzer’s essays on his work as a physician.
