the way to finish the book

There's a set of magical stuff that fiction can do for us. There's maybe thirteen things, of which who even knows which ones we can talk about. But one of them has to do with the sense of capturing what the world feels like to us, in the sort of way that I think that a reader can tell "Another sensibility like mine exists."

The thirteen things?? Great food for thought. And yes, the shared sensibility...but isn't that what the internet is all about at the moment?
