Three Quotes

  1. I write in the first person, but it is all fictional. The public assumes that what seems fictional is fact; so the way for me to be inventive is to seem factual but be fictional.
  2. I always start writing with a clean piece of paper and a dirty mind. 
  3. …you know we writers must occasionally stretch a point to heighten the dramatic situation.

Dennis, born Edward Everett Tanner III, was an American author whose novel Auntie Mame: An Irreverent Escapade was one of the best-selling American books of the 20th century.
