“A good book will always lead to you to another story - one that will take you back to the origins of an idea or further towards exploring it. Well written tales usually make their subjects and characters larger than life, not for glory of events or persons but out of admiration for ideas or principles; not because of the amount of power wielded by the protagonist but because of the style with which it is used; and not because of the quantum of odds overcome but because of the grace with which the odds are dealt.”

 

FactBehindFiction.com is about books, stories and film, its about discovering the link between a story and the events, people and ideas that actually shaped it. Its for all of us who can't help reading - whether its a book, comic, blog or the back of a milk carton.
