Quotes for writers (and people who like quotes) ALICE MUNRO

Quotes for writersThere are no such things as big and little subjects. The major things, the evils, that exist in the world have a direct relationship to the evil that exists around a dining room table when people are doing things to each other.

    Thank you Magz. I haven’t read Alice Munro in a long time but like you I’m going to search out more stories. Like the quote I posted. reminds me of Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple – all human life around a dinner table, I can believe it.
