"Since then, I've been in a hurry. Writing is another meditation that's also a frantic compensation. As if wearing headphones, I'm putting some of myself to sleep, rushing to the end of my days: there's a death wish in reducing life to watching one's fingers twitch on the alphabet. I'm as pathetic as that kid watching double features alone, but also as vain. Writing's an aggression on the world of books, one reader's bullying attempt to make himself known to others like him."
