Writing / Capote

It was particularly interesting how she's suggesting something about Capote "using" his BF to which he queries, can someone be using someone and love them simultaneously, but it was just a side chatting comment of little weight regarding their relationship, but had much greater implications in regards to the whole piece.

I am frequently noticing that often the best way to deliver a point about the main subject is in an aside, an allegory of little apparent weight.
An example of failing at this would be The Door In The Floor, where the idea is too emphasized as some simple brilliance throughout the entire piece. The proper way to deliver it is as a subtle casual aside that will jog the mind just enough to pick up on the deeper themes within the story.
