“When writers write from a place of insight and real caring about the truth, they have the ability to throw the lights on for the reader.” (Anne Lamott)

Finally, when writers write with insight, the reader is able to understand the truth about the situation.

Scott Fitzgerald do a phenomenal job in bringing the reader down to earth. The writers use their knowledge of the time period to write practically.
