Way back, last summer, when I was still embarking on Mr Tumnal’s curious story, Jane pointed me in the direction of two excellent quotations, or epitaphs to my story. The first from J.K.Rowling:
“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”
~Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, 2007
…and the second, of her own invention:
“And if they’re fictional, it is entirely acceptable to cheat on fictional men with other fictional men.”
~Jane Rawson, August 2009
“Wouldn’t it be weird to discover you were related to someone fictional? You’d start to doubt your own existence.”
