"There are some books that refuse to be written. They stand their ground year after year and will not be persuaded. It isn't because the book is not there and worth being written -- it is only because the right form of the story does not present itself.

—Mark Twain (1835-1910) [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] American author, humorist
