“A writer is congenitally unable to tell the truth and that is why we call what he writes fiction”

"A writer is congenitally unable to tell the truth and that is why we call what he writes fiction"– William Faulkner 

"Faulkner was skillful in creating complicated situations that involve a variety of characters, each with a different reaction to the situation.

He used this technique to dramatize the complexity of life and the difficulty of arriving at truth."
