Make Up Your Mind, There's a Good Chap

"Most novels are post-modern. We're in a post-modern period, although I'm not sure any of us fully understand what post-modern actually means. It's innovative the way I tell three separate stories ... but each of the three is quite traditional. I never wanted to produce ironic or post-modern commentary on literary modes; I wanted to embrace them. I guess it's a sort of post-modern version of extremely old-fashioned traditional forms."

- Michael Cunningham on his Specimen Days
