I was reading about Budd Schulberg over the weekend and a few things occurred to me:
1. The above picture of Schulberg at his typewriter with his cat standing next to him is possibly one of the top five most writerly writer pictures I’ve ever seen. Budd Schulberg is now like a God for a million Tumblrs that include pictures of writers, cats, and/or things you type on.
2. This 1989 People profile on the late Schulberg is incredibly awesome: “It is early evening on Long Island, and Budd Schulberg leans back in his lawn chair, sips a vodka and tonic and listens to the whisper of the wind chimes as a breeze blows his way.”
