“What is the origin... of the literary vocation, for inventing beings and stories?  [R]ebellion.  [Writers] demonstrate indirectly their rejection and criticism of life as it is... and manifest their desire to substitute for it the creations of their imagination and dreams.” 
 -- Letters to a Young Novelist by Mario Vargas Llosa

Interesting if discursive meditations on the art of writing.
