Saturday Quote

“Literature is a source of pleasure…  it is one of the rare inexhaustible joys in life, but it’s not only that.  It must not be disassociated from reality.  Everything is there.  That is why I never use the word fiction.  Every subtlety in life is material for a book…  Novels don’t contain only exceptional situations, life or death choices, or major ordeals; there are also everyday difficulties, temptations, ordinary disappointments; and, in response, every human attitude, every type of behavior, from the finest to the most wretched…  Literature informs, instructs, it prepares you for life…”
– From A Novel Bookstore by Laurence Cosse
