Andreas Corelli on Narratives

“Everything is a tale… What we believe, what we know, what we remember, even what we dream. Everything is a story, a narrative, a sequence of events with characters communicating an emotional content. We only accept as true what can be narrated.”

— Andreas Corelli in Carlos Ruiz Zafón’s The Angel’s Game, Act One: “City of the Damned”, Chapter 24
