“I think we’d all be better readers if we realized that it isn’t the writer who’s the time traveler. It’s the reader…”

Art of Quotation

“I think we’d all be better readers if we realized that it isn’t the writer who’s the time traveler. It’s the reader.

When we pick up an old novel, we’re not bringing the novelist into our world and deciding whether he or she is enlightened enough to belong here; we’re journeying into the novelist’s world and taking a look around.”
