The Collector etc

The only thing that kept him decent before was being poor.

I despise him too much to hate him.

It is a disturbing book. The text is so well written that I felt physically ill when I read its last fifteen pages.

John Fowles. Striking is that The Collector is his first ever novel.

I don’t believe I would be able to read it in Russian – ever, or in English – until fairly recently.


Now I need to read something shallow. Like Marina Abramovic’s memoirs.
