Amy Tan On Writing "Microscopically"
"I've found that the way to capture the truth of a character - and beyond that, to reflect the truth of how I feel - is to write microscopically. To focus on all the tiny details that, together, make sense of character. Each person's perspective is absolutely unique; my job is to unearth all the specific events and associations that form an individual consciousness." The Atlantic 12.10.13
