Lies Dressed as Truth

‘Fiction writers, at least in their braver moments, do 

desire the truth: to know it, speak it, serve it. But they 

go about it in a peculiar and devious way, which 

consists in inventing persons, places, and events 

which never did and never will exist or occur, and telling about these fictions in 

detail and at length and with a great deal of emotion, and then when they are 

done writing down this pack of lies, they say, ‘There! That’s the truth!”

Ursula K. LeGuin
