Sunday Quote: Hawkes on Fiction
“Fiction is an act of revenge”
-- John Hawkes
It absolutely can be. Furious about the state of the world? Write about it, and show the truth through fiction. So many great, great books have come about that way. George Orwell's Animal Farm and 1984. John Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men. Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged.
Can you think of any other books written as a form of protest?
