I grew, a happy, healthy child in a bright world of illustrated books, clean sand, orange trees, friendly dogs, sea vistas and smiling faces.
We live not only in a world of thoughts, but also in a world of things. Words without experience are meaningless.
There is nothing in the world that I loathe more than group activity, that communal bath where the hairy and slippery mix in a multiplication of mediocrity.
A masterpiece of fiction is an original world and as such is not likely to fit the world of the reader.
