Quotes by Lauren Groff  (?)

“In the end, fiction is the craft of telling truth through lies.”
Lauren Groff

“Great swaths of her life were white space to her husband. What she did not tell him balanced neatly with what she did. Still, there are untruths made of words and untruths made of silences, and Mathilde had only ever lied to Lotto in what she never said.”

Lauren Groff, Fates and Furies
