“Writers are magicians.  They write down words, and, if they’re good, you believe what they write is real, just as you believe a good magician has pulled the coins out of your ear, or made his assistant disappear.  But the words on the page have no connection to the person who wrote them.  Writers live other people’s lives for them.”

~J.D. Salinger, in Shoeless Joe by W.P. Kinsella
