“There is no such thing as a fact.”

There is only how you saw the fact, in a given moment. How you reported the fact. How your brain processed that fact. There is no extrication of the storyteller from the story.

Jodi Picoult, Small Great Things

Picoult was born in 1966 and she published her first novel at age 26.

It’s all bias, isn’t it?

This was a great novel, by the way. I think it was overshadowed by The Hate U Give, which came out around the same time and covered a similar theme. But as always with Picoult’s books, I was very moved. Would read again.
