The Power of Fiction


“fiction is not only one of the great escapes from the “real world” but also one of the great reflections of it. A good novel can contextualize a moment in history and bring us to understand or accept it with more clarity. Reading can even be a humbling experience, allowing us to discover new perspectives in cultural conversations and challenge our assumptions about the world around us.”

      Same here, Liz. Reading this passage was one of those “I wish I had written that” moments for me. Thanks for reading and commenting.

I'd love to hear from you!
