They said it in Jaipur Litfest 2016

The novel includes many matters without excluding anything. [...] It remains a hybrid form; there is no single way to read or write a novel. 
Colm Toibin
Literature is the balm to the damage done by the notion of mass media. We think it is meant for the masses, but it turns human beings into masses, or even mobs. [...] In such an atmosphere, literature comes in and fills our need to be unique in a unique way.
        David Grossman
