Fiction, is never anything more than fiction.

How many writers, like Nabokov, would refuse to accept, even for a nanosecond, the sentimental fiction that fiction is anything more than fiction, however real the novelist strives to make it?

Nabokov was imperiously testy about the writerly notion that characters could ‘take over’ a novel. 

‘My characters are galley slaves' he once attested.
