"Writing is not like painting where you add.  It is not what you put on the canvas that the reader sees.  Writing is more like sculpture where you remove, you eliminate in order to make the work visible.  Even those pages you remove somehow remain."

- Elie Wiesel, interview in Writers at Work, 8th Series (George Plimpton ed. 1988).
