Prophet or Madman?

“If a story seems too random, or perhaps too brilliant, for a “madman” to have conceived of it himself, then consider that the “author” might be reality and the “madman” just the reader. After all, only reality can escape the limits of our imagination.”

From Atmospheric Disturbances by Rivka Galchen
