Annie Dillard

Veracity isn't much of a drawback to a writer; there's a lot of truth out there to work with. And veracity isn't much of a drawback to the reader. The real world arguably exerts a greater fascination on people than any fictional one; many people, at least, spend their whole lives there, apparently by desire.

— Annie Dillard

My only argument is with Ms. Dillard's employment of "arguably."
