    Curiosity's an interesting thing. You can flood the text with information, but that doesn't enhance the literary experience of it, the drama. I think tehre are some readers willing to live with a certain degree of unsatisfied curiosity - the curiosity keeps you pushing forward - but others find such withholding annoying.
    Writers believe that if youput words in a certain order, you're going to transport readers: You're goin gto give certain order, you're going to transport readers: you're going to give them feeling, you're going to give them sensation, you're going to tweak deep things in their imaginations. and yet, we can't systematize it. Just because something works well once doesn't mean you can repoeat it. The fact that I Can know so little about this process, and yet feel so drawn to it - well, that's what keeps me coming back.
    When I read Kafka's parable, I feel strangeness and beauty, I feel sorrow. It's inventive, and yet the invention is tethered to deep, plunging feeling. These are the important values to me: when something otherwordly gets its hooks in you emotionally. To me, this is a perfect text.

    If I love a book, it first strikes my heart. The mind comes in later, as I start to articulate why it is I like it. Both experiencs are joyous, but you need that initial emotional link. It's wy I don't like theories that espouse interrogation as our pirmary method of enagaing with books. It's as though Alice - instead of just running after the white rabbit and jumping into the hole - would first say, Why is this rabbit white? Why is it running so fast? Should I be following it? That way, she would never get to Wonderland.
