The crime of fiction is worse than the crime of the flesh. After all, the crime of the flesh can be accidental, the fruit of a momentary passion, whereas no one has ever heard of an unpremeditated crime of fiction.

[from Luis Fernando Veríssimo, O Clube dos Anjos (The Club of Angels), p14; my own bad translation]
