Books are not places apart from this world. They are impossible places within it.

We do not read to be transported to places that do not exist, but to access places in our lived experience that had not been visible or registered without the incantation of the text.

Consequently, writing is not the shaping of the imagined, but the arrangement of the existing, its reencoding for fresh discovery by the reader.
