More of David M.'s books…
Umberto Eco
“We live for books.”
Umberto Eco

J.G. Ballard
“Deserts possess a particular magic, since they have exhausted their own futures, and are thus free of time. Anything erected there, a city, a pyramid, a motel, stands outside time. It's no coincidence that religious leaders emerge from the desert. Modern shopping malls have much the same function. A future Rimbaud, Van Gogh or Adolf Hitler will emerge from their timeless wastes.”
J.G. Ballard, The Atrocity Exhibition

Jorge Luis Borges
“He consorted with prostitutes and poets...and with persons even worse.”
Jorge Luis Borges, Collected Fictions
