Quote: Alexander Chee on writing



Alexander Chee on writing:

“All my life I’ve been told that this isn’t important, that it doesn’t matter, that it could never matter. And yet I think it does. I think this is the real reason the people who would take everything from us say this. I think it’s the same reason that when fascists come to power, writers are among the first to go to jail. And that is the point of writing."

--Alexander Chee, from his essay collection How to Write an Autobiographical Novel
