    A novelist is, like all mortals, more fully at home on the surface of the present than in the ooze of the past.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

    He maintained that the case was lost or won by the time the final juror had been sworn in; his summation was set in his mind before the first witness was called.
