'Tidy endings'

21 November 2011

'The world does not have tidy endings. The world does not have neat connections.

It is not filled with epiphanies that work perfectly at the moment that you need them. Narrative becomes the way you make sense of chaos. That's how you focus the world. It's the only way reason you should ever try this writing job'

Dennis Lehane, author of Moonlight Mile in The Independent on Sunday
