Jonathan Franzen
“Fiction is a particularly effective way for strangers to connect across time and distance”
Jonathan Franzen, Freedom

Franz Kafka
“I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us.”
Franz Kafka

Sinclair Lewis
“It is impossible to discourage the real writers - they don't give a damn what you say, they're going to write.”
Sinclair Lewis

William Faulkner
“Ninety-nine percent talent…ninety-nine percent discipline…ninety-nine percent work. He must never be satisfied with what he does. It is never as good as it can be done. Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Don’t bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself. An artist is a creature driven by demons. He doesn’t know why they choose him and he’s usually too busy to wonder why. He is completely amoral in that he will rob, borrow, beg, or steal from anybody and everybody to get the work done.”
William Faulkner, The Sound and the Fury

V.S. Naipaul
“Non-fiction can distort; facts can be realigned. But fiction never lies.”
V.S. Naipaul, A Bend in the River
