The truth about stories is….

“The truth about stories is, that’s all we are.” (Thomas King, The Truth about Stories: A Native Narrative [2003])

“We live in a world ruled by fictions of every kind — mass merchandising, advertising, politics conducted as a branch of advertising, the instant translation of science and technology into popular imagery, the increasing blurring and intermingling of identities within the realm of consumer goods, the preempting of any free or original imaginative response to experience by the television screen. We live inside an enormous novel.” (J.G. Ballard, qtd. in Smith. Artful [Penguin, 2013]: 37)
