Canadian novelist and playwright
WORDS ABOUT WORDS
There'll come a day when the public won't swallow any of our stories unless they believe them to be real. Everybody wants the real thing, or thinks they do. Truth is stranger than fiction, someone said. It may not be, but it's more satisfying. Facts are the bread America wants to eat. The poetry of facts is the poetry of the American soul.
Guy Vanderhaege, Canadian novelist and playwright, The Englishman's Boy, 1996
