So Bill, as an author yourself, how would you feel about Selling Out? Me, I'd jump at the chance.

Personally, I was always kind of baffled that The Great Gatsby was considered the definitive American novel. But that's me.

I don't think the motive for creation is that big of a part of the quality of the work. Dostoevsky pretty much wrote Crime and Punishment to pay his gambling debts.
