When I write, I aim in my mind not toward New York but toward a vague spot a little to the east of Kansas. I think of the books on library shelves, without their jackets, years old, and a countryish teenaged boy finding them, and having them speak to him. The reviewers, the stacks in Brentanos, are just hurdles to get over, to place the books on that shelf.
