It's a book about a publishing house, and the context is, the illustrator and the publisher are talking about text to accompany illustrations of Genesis:
"Rewrite it? But I can't rewrite the Bible."
"You're going to recreate the world, aren't you? Then you might as well go all the way and rewrite the Bible."
"You're going to recreate the world, aren't you?" is the best description I've ever seen for why someone would want to create anything. It makes me happy.
In other news, I can only find my pink cat ears, and I wanted to go to class in the tiger-print ones. My life: SO VERY HARD.
