Now, as anyone obliged to report on the industry can attest, book publishers tend to be easily spooked sorts who perceive themselves as moving through a dangerous environment stalked by large predators.
All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you: the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. If you can get so that you can give that to people, then you are a writer.
Dialogue novels and stories are worth reading not simply because of their unique structures, but because of how they engage us. We must become active readers and listeners. We must work to understand the characters’ perspectives and hear the real stories beneath the ones they’re telling. These dialogue novels and stories ask us to rethink conversations both in fiction and in life and to realize that the simple act of speaking, of talking to one other, is more than enough to convey even the most complex adventures.
