The Man from the Boys

All fiction is autobiographical. But you move the furniture around. So all fiction is also invented. Real life shot through with fantasy – that is what novels are.
Shahril Sewa interviews author Tony Parsons in Starmag today. 

I very much enjoyed Man and Boy when it came out and bought it as a gift for friends.  Now the third novel featuring Harry Silver, Man From the Boys, is out and I have some catching up to do.

(I love the quote above and will throw it at the folks doing my writing classes, because it's precisely what I'm trying to tell them.)

Sharon, how are you these days? The world is a stage and we are actors, inventing stories about ourselves. In that sense, I agree with that quote.
