    This is the beauty of the art of fiction, as opposed to laying out an essay or writing a thriller. You remain open to the possibilities throughout the entire story. When they're lucky, the artist finds on eline, one moment aht brings it all together. It's ahrd to say how certain stories just punch us in the heart and teh brain at the same time at the end. I suppose that's what we're looking for. But each story has its own way valence, its own way of saying goodbye to you.

    I think it's their very blankness that allows them to channel so much emotion. Because they don't bring anything specific to mind, they allow us to feel without thinking. At the end of a story or novel, you do not want the reader thinking. Endings are about emotion, and logic is emotion's enemy. It's the writer's job to disarm the reader of his logic, to just make the reader feel. You'll often see this in the final moments of a film: The camera tilts up, and the movie ends with a nondistinct image of the sky, or the sea, or the coast. Something the eye can't quite focus on, which allos you to focus on everything that's come before. That's how "That was how he was" works, too. It brings nothing else to mind. This sentence would be a nonsentence if it began the story - but placed at the end, it's packed with the charge of everything that precedes it.

    Fiction's about running through other people's lives, running through the great and terrible things that happen along the way, and especially the thing that lies at the end, experiencing it over and over and over. Whether or not a novle actually contains death, it's often about the highlights of a life. LIterature allows us to experience thousands of lives, to understand how we might want to live our own.
    The purpose of literature is a rehearsal for death.
