Power of the Pointless

"The novel alone could reveal the immense, mysterious power of the pointless. - Milan Kundera

If you seriously consider life, much of what goes on seems pointless. You drop your apple and it bruises. You trip on the third step going to your room. You put chicken on your sandwich instead of turkey. There are hundreds of moments everyday that we hardly bother paying attention to. Novels are about life. It is the intention of the author to give power and purpose to everyday, pointless moments joining together to create a meaningful story.
