"Whoever is writing a novel has a very acute sense of time. Why? Because when you begin to write a novel you know it may take years to finish. It's not like writing a short story, a dramatic work or an article. We're talking about three or four years in the case of Libra, for example. So there's one dominant preoccupation. It's not only that you want to write a marvelous book, but you want to finish it before you die. This is something I felt even when I wrote my first novel, and I was only 29 years old when I started. It happens with every book. It becomes a race." --DeLillo, from the 1993 Salmagundi interview.
