- Hoodlum Tribe: how much of the stories in the album ' greetings from Michigan' are true?
- Sufjan Stevens: This is a complicated question. It is probably important here to distinguish truth and fact. Facts can be nullified and invalidated, but they may still contain something true. Even a lie is very telling. It conveys something true about the liar. Just because an event didn't actually happen doesn't mean it isn't true. A novel, a work of fiction, that is rendered skillfully, will affect us as something true. The careful fabrication of characters and events resonates beyond the words and symbols on the page. This is a successful work of art, one in which the world expands beyond the abstraction of the art itself, in which artificial things begin to live and breathe with us, face to face. This is the strange phenomenon of art.
