The Desire for Fiction

Seems to partially come from the desire to know other minds. It seems so obvious, yet we forget it; everybody that we see on the street inhabits their own universe, with their own set of friends, parents, place where they grew up, profession, interests. They'll all going through the common drama of life. Certain kinds of stories open up that window that's either closed, with strangers, or opened to a different extent with friends and lovers, and let the reader see another universe that exists just over the way.
