One of the admirable features of British novelists is that they have no scruple about setting their stories in foreign settings with wholly foreign personnel.
All the things that were read to me by my father were stories about things becoming all right.
V. S. Naipaul
Ghost stories really scare me. I have such a big imagination that after I watch a horror movie like 'The Grudge', I look in the corners of my room for the next two days.
Hollywood has definitely grown, in embracing the inclusion of Latinos in the world, because, for some time, we didn't exist. We were not part of any stories.
My level of intervention in the press, trying to control stories, is zero. Subzero.

Nearly all monster stories depend for their success on Jack killing the Giant, Beowulf or St. George slaying the Dragon, Harry Potter triumphing over the basilisk. That is their inner grammar, and the whole shape of the story leads towards it.
A. N. Wilson

I probably get more inspiration for human stories and idiosyncrasies than I do animal stories.
I think romance is a tool, comedy is a tool and drama is a tool.

I don't necessarily love the sports per se, I love the stories behind them. Also in a kind of perverse way I like to study what it does to us, why we care so much. It's caring about something that's utterly meaningless.
