Poetic Definition Of The Novel

I have to share this absolutely stunning quote by British author Julian Barnes. He's written 10 novels, 2 volumes of short stories, and a couple of essay collections.

When asked what a novel does, Mr. Barnes said: "It tells beautiful, shapely lies which enclose hard, exact truths."

Takeaway Truth

A lyrical answer can still be dead-on accurate.
