“The thing that interests me–in a lot of the stuff I think that I do–has to do with, I think, a lot, commercial entertainment: its efficiency, its sheer ability to deliver pleasure in large doses changes people’s relationship to art and entertainment. It changes what an audience is looking for. I would argue it changes us in deeper ways than that, and that some of the ways that commercial culture and commercial entertainment affects human beings is one of the things that I sort of think serious or “arty” fiction ought to be doing right now.”
