Despite there being more coming and going than a parlor farce, Mr. Blank still cannot seem to make it to the door, which unaccountable fact his author tries to cover for by hamming up Mr. The author writes, and a story unfolds, the purest possible demonstration of chance: characters only coming to be, events only coming to pass, because — hesitating at the top of the page — the writer chose to say this and not that.

Would we be compassionate, realising that our fates were dictated by a greater pattern, or merciless, having recognised that an all-powerful being is able to change a pattern whenever he likes? Would we give him reprieve, as Anna and the Report Writer do, or would we ask for him to be hung, drawn and quartered, as the braying masses demand?
