"Words are just a way we communicate. Images are a way we communicate. And I couldn't figure out why they had to be in different baskets."
"The stories themselves are somewhat interchangeable. In a sense they're kind of carriers. In other words, "CREMASTER 2" could have had a couple of other stories other than Norman Mailer's "The Executioner's Song" to carry it. "The Executioner's Song" was its carrier, in that the Rocky Mountains were the real story."
