Literary Birthday - 14 June - Joan Silber

Happy Birthday, Joan Silber, born 14 June 1945

Five Quotes

  1. Slowed time is -- or should be -- a way of pointing to what's important.
  2. This is fictional time, where events play out and possibilities are exhausted, so that meaning can emerge.
  3. If you saw through everything, it made it hard to figure out what to do with yourself.
  4. A story depends on things not standing still, on the built-in condition of impermanence.
  5. A story is entirely determined by what portion of time it chooses to narrate.

Silber is an American novelist and short story writer.
