L: Where is your final destination, as a writer?

M: My goal is to write a book like Brothers Karamazov.

L: What aspects of that novel are you talking about? Its complex and varied characters and structure?

M: Sure. But that’s not everything. There is an entire universe contained in Brothers Karamazov. So many different facts of life, life systems, world-view, stories… these are all in that novel. There is always something to learn, no matter how many times you read it.
