Author Colm Toibin on Jane

The Irish author Colm Toibin was born in Dublin & teaching writing at Princeton & Stanford. This is his quote- he loves to write fiction & to teach it. “It’s all about keeping the line clear. Look at Austen-in her novels,you get a novel, you get a dance, followed by an encounter, followed by a letter, than a period of solitude. No flashback & no back story.”
