Genesis of a book

Every book has a writer. The novel you choose in a bookstore or tug off a library shelf is not an orphan. Somebody made up this whole world entirely for your edification. And that same somebody wants you to fall in love with this thing of words they crafted with their bare hands. 
At best, a book is the product of a thousand infinitesimal choices, all designed to seduce the reader and make redundant the outside world. To read it is to enter not just the tidy, contained world on the printed page, but the ragged, chaotic universe that lies behind it.
