God Bless Winterson

From here:

"And how bored rigid are you, - as bored as me – by the current fashion for ‘great storytelling’, as though that is all all all a writer has to do. No wonder people turn to poetry. But I also believe that the novel is much more than a story, and that in the exploring of what it can be, we gain more than we lose, even if our good writers make mistakes and get it wrong sometimes."
