Adding Friction, a column @SLC
"Jane Jacobs was forever taking on ambitious subjects from new directions,
marching imperturbably into all she didn't know. She'd never understand,
she told an interviewer once, how other authors could 'stand the boredom of
just writing down everything [they] already knew.' But she paid the price
for indulging her insatiable curiosity. With each new book... 'I always get
scared to death.' Caught up in complexities of a new field not at first
fully apparent, 'I realize it's too deep for me, but I have to keep on with
it.' Until she gets it."
