Papa speaks on being a writer

"All good books have one thing in common - they are truer than if they had really happened, and after you've read one of them you will feel that all that happened, happened to you and then it belongs to you forever; the happiness and unhappiness, good and evil, ecstasy and sorrow, the food,

the wine, beds, people, and the weather.  If you can give this to readers,  then you're a writer."
