Personal and political

I definitely like fiction when it gets political. Some writers think it should always be so. Besides Kingsolver, some writers that come to mind include Doris Lessing, Jean-Paul Sartre, Albert Camus, Mario Vargas Llosa, and Kurt Vonnegut.

Sure, I like to escape. But not always to escape.
