Every week, I’ll put up a quotation related to writing or creation and tell you a little bit about the person who said it. I’ll try to vary the speakers as much as possible.
"“The cat sat on the mat is not a story. The cat sat on the other cat’s mat is a story.” - John le Carré
John le Carré is a British writer of spy novels. He was born as David John Moore Cornwell and started writing under the pseudonym while working for the British intelligence services MI5 and MI6. He was ranked as one of the “50 greatest British writers since 1945” by The Times in 2008. His third novel is the famous The Spy Who Came in from the Cold which became an international bestseller and was later adapted into a movie. (Wikipedia)
