The difference between literature and life

'It's a special form of scholarly neurosis,' said Camel. 'He's no longer able to distinguish between life and literature.'

'Oh yes I can,' said Adam. 'Literature is mostly about having sex and not much about having children. Life is the other way round.'
David Lodge, The British Museum Is Falling Down (New York: Holt, Rinehart & Winston: 1965), p. 63.
