Some DFW quotes

I was reading some DFW quotes on goodreads. Here’s one that I particularly liked:

The postmodern founders’ patricidal work was great, but patricide produces orphans, and no amount of revelry can make up for the fact that writers my age have been literary orphans throughout our formative years.

I’m in agreement on this part … which is why I’d like to write a novel where many of the characters are guests from previous works … their lives are faithfully extended beyond their original creating novel, and interwoven. Perhaps a tradition could be born by getting into the habit of extending characters from previous works and arguing with other works on how it should unfold, according to the breath of life given to it by its founding author.
