The Great Writer said to me, "My intention—and I don't believe this is unique to myself—is to get the reader, that isolated entity, of here or of the future, to feel, even for the smallest moment (or, more grandly and egotistically, for the greatest moment), something that tells him that in this sea of humanity there's still a place for that possible fiction, the individual self, his individual self: that, beyond all the awards I've received, is what I am trying to accomplish."

I said, "Wow. I myself am only trying to induce nausea, vertigo, and projectile vomiting."
