Lynne Marshall

“Ann Patchett about the lack of a fiction Pulitzer winner this year.

"Let me underscore the obvious here: Reading fiction is important. It is a
vital means of imagining a life other than our own, which in turn makes us
more empathetic beings. Following complex story lines stretches our brains
beyond the 140 characters of sound-bite thinking, and staying within the
world of a novel gives us the ability to be quiet and alone, two skills
that are disappearing faster than the polar icecaps.”
