Meet the Writers: Arthur Saltzman

We'd like you to meet Arthur Saltzman from Blood Orange Review issue 2.3.

“What keeps me writing is the deliciously partial satisfaction of getting something shaped and something said. It is a goad and a gratification at once, on the order of Samuel Beckett’s advice to ‘fail again, fail better.’ Or if I need greater comfort when the keys seize, there’s E. L. Doctorow’s contention that writing is ‘like driving a car at night. You never see further than your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.'"

This is the motivation that keeps Arthur writing. We hope you take the time to read his essay entitled, Trompe L'Oreille.
