As I was listening to the Steve Jobs’ biography (you didn’t think I’d actually read it, did you?), I had to mentally pause all of a sudden when Isaacson was describing the author of the sneak peak article for Time Magazine about the original iPhone. He described Lev Grossman as being a novelist for Time. Isn’t Time a magazine? Did I miss something? Are novelists not self-employed? I’m actually not being coy or snarky (there’s a change), I’m actually curious. My assumption is that he writes novels, but uses writing for Time as a way to pay the bills between novels.
Am I right on that?
