“Novels do resemble buildings. A first chapter, a first line is like an entrance hall, a doorway. The reader has to be drawn in – what first meets the eye is important. You’re asking the reader to step inside a mental space which has a shape. That’s very much like someone stepping inside a modern building, going to look at it and deciding whether they like it or not.”

– Ian McEwan
