“For our generation, the entire world seems to present itself as “familiar”, but since that’s of course an illusion in terms of anything really important about people, maybe any “realistic” fiction’s job is opposite what it used to be- no longer making the strange familiar but making the familiar strange again. It seems important to find ways of reminding ourselves that most “familiarity” is mediated and delusive.” – David Foster Wallace
