As Charged

“I don’t think I’ve ever consciously befuddled, or made a puzzle of anything. I might be a better writer if I didn’t tuck in things for the reader to find out. There are places where if you want to know what this character or that character is saying, you have to get out a Dutch dictionary, but it’s not really necessary. That is, the stories can still be read; the idea is that a deeper reading will continually be rewarded—this is the standard by which obscurity can be judged.”
