"Two of the greatest pleasures in fiction"

“Ambiguity, too many writers forget, comes with any and all language use. It’s a bigger accomplishment, as a writer, to make up a credible character who doesn’t know all the words we know, and it’s a greater artistic generosity to put readers in a (fictional) position of certainty and power. Two of the greatest pleasures in fiction include feeling — even for a moment — what it is to know, and feeling, intensely, what it is to be almost completely unsure.”   

— Daniel Bosch
