Jay S. Walker
I think you can do a lot with fiction, and in some cases you can say even more in fiction than you can in straight-up documentary journalism.
It's clear on the one hand that an education enriches and informs a response to beauty, even makes it possible in esoteric cases.

Irving R. Kaufman

What really grabs me is when a reader writes to express her personal story and how a book helped her situation, or her acceptance of a situation she can't change.
