On Resonant Thoughts: Geoff Dyer on Clichés

FullSizeRender-36 copy

“Beware of clichés…
There are clichés of response as well as expression.
There are clichés of observation and of thought–even of conception.
Many novels [or pieces of music, say], even quite a few adequately written ones,
are clichés of form which conform to clichés of expectation.”
Geoff Dyer
