Personal Quote:

(on novel-writing) You have to write a very good ending because you have created this artificial environment, and you've kept people in it, and you have to let them out. Really let them out, not just walk away and abandon them. You have to give them some ceremony that will release them, that will let the book do to them what it needs to do.
