Lenny Interview – Emma Donoghue

I love this recent quote from the author.. (from an interview featured in the latest issue of Lenny)

With my novels, I tend to put my historian’s hat on and take the facts as far as they go. Was there a train that afternoon at three o’clock? What was the name of the bird that would have been flying by? Then I think, Great, whip off my historian’s hat, put on my fiction writer’s hat, and I’m thrilled to be making it all up again.
