"Narrative is metaphoric and critical of other narratives. Each has a whole web of interpretations that compete with others. [E]very hour you spend with a narrative is a criticism of the life unlived during that time. Life is whatever the narrative narrates rather than whatever else you thought it was, and if the narrative is sufficiently picaresque, the world you return to, the world that the narrative implicitly critici[s]es, will disappoint you. Narratives are, in a sense, all stories of genesis; to tell them is to offer a standard for judging other metaphoric views of life."
