other things that didn't happen

"A lie is when you say something happened which didn't happen. But there is only ever one thing which happened at a particular time and a particular place. And there are an infinite number of things which didn't happen at that time and place. And if I think about something which didn't happen, I start thinking about all the other things that didn't happen." Mark Haddon, from his book The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time

that is one of the best books I have read. I have his second book, A Spot Of Bother, but have not read it as yet.
