He's going to do 26 volumes for this "multi volume novel". Up till now the volumes have been at ~800-900 pages. How can he justify this? It's all going to be filler.

>quantity = quality
assuming he follows through with his claim, and this isn't some bs marketing/attention ploy. or he decides to "redefine" the word volume to put multiple volumes in one cover once he gets bored. or better yet a few years down the road he reopens the file and "change all: she->he" and "he->she" and ta-da! next volume is done. i mean xanther? wouldn't be too hard to do.
>Joyce writing thousands of pages of filler.
Because they knew it'd be a ridiculous waste of time. There's literally no reason to stretch one story out for that many pages.
Joyce may have spent 17 years writing Finnegans Wake, but those years were spent on packing a paragraph's worth of meanings into each sentence, sometimes into each word.
