Monday Morning Wisdom #240


MMWI’m interested in how a novel can be symphonic, by which I mean that, like in a great symphony, I like my novels to be composed of certain movements. There are crescendos, motifs, that peak over the course of the book played by different instruments in different tones, the final chords to give the listeners the satisfaction that yes, that ended in the right moment. ~Amor Towles, interviewed in the Nov/Dec 2019 issue of Writer’s Digest
