"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have ecome something regular, but we managed not to. We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr
"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts, and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life." Hilary Mantel
