Famous quotes containing the word fiction:

    Given that external reality is a fiction, the writer’s role is almost superfluous. He does not need to invent the fiction because it is already there.
    —J.G. (James Graham)

    If there were genders to genres, fiction would be unquestionably feminine.
    William Gass (b. 1924)
