The New York Times  interviews Alan Moore

“A version of this article appears in print on September 11, 2016,
on page BR9 of the Sunday Book Review ….”

“What genres do you prefer? And which do you avoid?”

“To be honest, having worked in genre for so long, I’m happiest
when I’m outside it altogether, or perhaps more accurately,
when I can conjure multiple genres all at once, in accordance
with my theory (now available, I believe, as a greeting card and
fridge magnet) that human life as we experience it is a
simultaneous multiplicity of genres. I put it much more elegantly
on the magnet.”

in The New Yorker  issue dated Sept. 12, 2016.

The article in which the phrase was embedded is not  recommended.
Neither is the book (which the foolhardy explorer may easily find)
from which the above snippet was taken.

* That of Fields of the Lord .
