Hoe boosheid een schrijver in de weg kan zitten.
“I think that fiction writing which does not acknowledge the uncertainty of the narrator himself, is a form of imposture and which I find very, very difficult to take. Any form of authorial writing where the narrator sets himself up as stagehand and director and judge and executor in a text, I find somehow unacceptable. I cannot bear to read books of this kind.”
W.G. Sebald aangehaald in James Wood, How fiction works, p.5
