Quote of the moment...

"To say that one cannot produce a good novel within the discipline of a formal structure is as foolish as to say that no sonnet can be great poetry since a sonnet is restricted to fourteen lines -- an octave and a sestet -- and a strict rhyming sequence."
-PD James   Talking About Detective Fiction
