In Search of Lost Time in the Bookshop

Funeral Games by Mary Renault

"But we must come to realise that every word is perfect, including those we scratch out. As my pen moves across this page the whole world writes. All of human history combines at this mere moment now to produce in the flow of this hand a single dot: Who are you and I, dear friends, to contradict the whole past of the universe? Let us then in our wisdom say yes to the flow of the pen." - Luke Rhinehart, The Dice Man
