“The fiction writer,” he says in a bit of advice that might describe his own oeuvre, “is trying to create a false memory with the force of history.”

Delaney's writing style left me with a lot of memories that feel absolutely real.

I'm surprised The Einstein Intersection wasn't mentioned in the article. Loved About Writing. Well worth a read for anyone interested in the subject.

I doubt the author of the article has read The Einstein Intersection but it should be required reading IMO.
