    A talent for drama is not a talent for writing, but is an ability to articulate human relationships.
    Gore Vidal (b. 1925)

    I find in most novels no imagination at all. They seem to think the highest form of the novel is to write about marriage, because that’s the most important thing there is for middle-class people.
