Clark Zlotchew
“Fiction has been maligned for centuries as being "false," "untrue," yet good fiction provides more truth about the world, about life, and even about the reader, than can be found in non-fiction.”
Clark Zlotchew

David Sedaris
“A good [short story] would take me out of myself and then stuff me back in, outsized, now, and uneasy with the fit.”
David Sedaris
