Refers to her interest in and writings about the Middle East and anti-Zionism, and her writing in general at age 67: "...I am...trying to accustom myself to the idea of "going on for seventy," though it seems much less than a decade ago that I was 57 and trying to get used to the idea of going on for sixty...My face has had a landslide, but I haven't got fat or gone gray, and still turn out a novel a year, and a travel or other nonfiction book, within a few months of the novel, thus keeping the wolf from the door, though he tends to prowl around and get one foot over the front door mat every so often. It's not so easy for the old-established non-best-selling authors - in a world that belongs to youth, and in which pornography passes as literature. One of the sadnesses of growing old is the number of friends who fall out along the way, though in my own case whilst I have lost many from the past I have acquired very many new ones in the present...and it's in the present we have to live..."
