Flannery O'Connor

"We now live in an age that doubts both fact and value, which is swept this way and that by momentary convictions. Instead of reflecting a balance from the world around him, the novelist now has to achieve one from a felt balance inside himself."

[from Mystery and Manners, p. 49.]
