Janet Malcolm

Janet Malcom is a nonfiction writer and journalist. Her books include In the Freud Archives, The Journalist and the Murderer, and Iphigenia in Forest Hills.

 

"Every journalist who is not too stupid or full of himself to notice what is going on knows that what he does is morally indefensible. He is a kind of confidence man, preying on people's vanity, ignorance, or loneliness, gaining their trust and betraying them without remorse."

– Janet Malcolm, The Journalist and the Murderer
