Journalists write less than they know and novelists write more, he told Harriet when he learned she was a writer. A journalist will know the premier has a mistress kept in a hotel at government expense while his battered wife regularly visits the emergency ward, and not write about it. A novelist will not only write about it but come to sweeping conclusions about the nature of man. What fun they must have, he said.
