Best Seller Round-Up

"I am a completely horizontal author.
I can't think unless I'm lying down, either in bed or stretched on a couch and with a cigarette and coffee handy. I've got to be puffing and sipping.
As the afternoon wears on, I shift from coffee to mint tea to sherry to martinis.
No, I don't use a typewriter."

- Truman Capote in 1956.
Responding to the question "[w]hat are your writing habits".
From The Paris Review Interviews.
