QUOTES:

"We care about moral issues, nobility, decency, happiness, goodness—the issues that matter in the real world, but which can only be addressed, in their purity, in fiction."

"Fiction, because it is not about somebody who actually lived in the real world, always has the possibility of being about oneself."
