“I think fiction now is becoming less and less interesting and important. Many of the things fiction used to do are done better on HBO or in other media.”
– the above quotation was taken from “10 Questions,” Newsweek November 19th, 2012. Morris is responding to a question about Virginia Woolf’s statement that fiction will always outlive biography.
About the Writer:
Morris has written biographies of Beethoven and Theodore Roosevelt. His imaginative biography of Ronald Reagan, Dutch, used the controversial technique of Morris imagining himself as a character in Reagan’s life, a decidedly fictional technique used while still “maintaining scholarly honesty.”
