Obama: 1st Author President

Check out this great article, which includes quotes from Toni Morrison, Rick Moody, Jane Smiley, and others, on how Obama is the first writer president. A snippet:

Morrison finds herself wondering how some of her late friends would have reacted, like James Baldwin (“How I miss him now,” she says), who in the 1960s had scorned as condescending Robert Kennedy’s prediction that the United States would have a black president in 40 years. Were “Invisible Man” author Ralph Ellison still alive, he would have renamed his classic novel “Visible Man,” Morrison joked.
