“The test of whether or not a writer has divined the natural shape of his story is just this: After reading it, can you imagine it differently, or does it silence your imagination and seem to you absolute and final? As an orange is final. As an orange is something nature has made just right.”

The Paris Review Interviews, vol. I (New York: Picador, 2006), 20–21.
