Famous quotes containing the word fiction:

    ... fiction never exceeds the reach of the writer’s courage.
    Dorothy Allison (b. 1949)

    A reader who quarrels with postulates, who dislikes Hamlet because he does not believe that there are ghosts or that people speak in pentameters, clearly has no business in literature. He cannot distinguish fiction from fact, and belongs in the same category as the people who send cheques to radio stations for the relief of suffering heroines in soap operas.
    Northrop Frye (b. 1912)

    Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn’t.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
