I finished the book review I’m writing with the following quote from Horacio Castellanos Moya:
A writer should do what he or she feels is correct in their conscience. But that doesn’t mean—because you’re following your conscience—you’re going to write good books. For me, that’s very important. It’s one thing: your way of being a citizen; of fulfilling your responsibilities as a human being; resisting injustice, or repression, or killings. But that doesn’t mean, because it’s a good cause, it will make your books better.
Just in case anybody wonders how I really feel about the book I’m reviewing.
