Read from February 21 to April 02, 2012

Another odd but interesting book, this time the painstaking account of a life in which almost nothing happens, identity is passivity, resistance to convention is futile and unimaginable, and everything is inutterably dreary and worthless...until nearly the final chapter (of the book - not necessarily of the life!). Details to follow.

It seemed to make no difference at all in most things, and then to matter frightfully in quite unexpected ways.""
