Quotes for Novel:

  1. It was my angry, Dickensian novel I suppose. It was cathartic- I expended a lot of frustration on that one. Richard M. Helms.
  2. All of my problems are rather complicated- I need an entire novel to deal with them, not a short story or a movie. It's like a personal therapy. Manuel Puig.
  3. When I look back over my novels what I find is that when I think I'm finished with a theme, I'm generally not. And usually themes will recur from novel to novel in odd, new guises. Richard Russo.
