sunday sermon

Stories distribute the suffering so that it can be borne.

Writers are not just people who sit down and write. They hazard themselves. Every time you compose a book your composition of yourself is at stake.

What we call fiction is the ancient way of knowing, the total discourse that antedates all the special vocabularies… Fiction is democratic, it reasserts the authority of the single mind to make and remake the world.

― E.L. Doctorow
