“We face the same challenge with each new story, novel, poem, play, screen play, or essay:  given subject X, or premise Y, or image Z, there are an infinite number of directions in which the work could go.  There is no reason to think one direction is inherently better, more artisitically valid, than all the others.  Yet we must choose -- for each individual piece -- just one.”
