Same here. I tend not to come at fiction with my qualifications drawn like weapons either - for me the things I teach my students are for very specific situations and my aim is to get them to a point where breaking those rules is a conscious stylistic and creative choice. Moran is a writer I trust to have done that, so those 'errors' are deliberate choices.
