That...is a pipe dream...
Ain't It Time We Said Goodbye by Robert Greenfield
“Right in front of us on a screen that looks to be at least twenty feet high and twice as wide, the extremely awful movie Myra Breckinridge is being shown in very lurid living color. As Raquel Welch, Mae West, and John Houston cavort before us like overblown figures from a fever dream by Hieronymus Bosch, Gram and I look at one another in horror. Both of us know we have entered another dimension. Gram Parsons and I are now in the twilight zone.”

Joe Albany
Low Down by A.J. Albany
“Once I made the mistake of saying I enjoyed listening to Lester Young over Charlie Parker, which solicited the response: “What the hell do you know?” It was true, I only knew what I liked, but in the often too-serious jazz scene, it seems what one likes isn’t valid unless backed up by a twenty-page dissertation. That attitude probably accounts for a certain percentage of jazz enthusiasts who are pedantic bores.”

A Man Without Breath
by Philip Kerr

Prague Fatale and A Man Without Breath read more as vignettes than novels, as the other Bernie Gunther novels read. Gunther is more completely developed in these flashback stories that carry the dissonant grace notes

Philip Kerr
“About thirty centimeters high, the figure appeared to be dancing a tango with a rather scantily clad girl who reminded me a lot of Anita Berber. Anita had been the queen of Berlin’s nude dancers at the White Mouse Club on Jägerstrasse until the night she’d laid out one of the patrons with an empty champagne bottle. The story was he’d objected to her pissing on his table, which used to be her shtick. I missed the old Berlin.”
Philip Kerr, If The Dead Rise Not

“Some kids would be much better off without the added confusion of an adult point of view. It destroys the purity of their world.”

Philip Kerr
“We Germans have a great capacity for ignoring other people and what they tell us; it’s what makes us so damned German. It’s always been like that, I guess. Rome tells Martin Luther to lay off and does he lay off?—does he hell. Beethoven goes deaf and, in spite of what his doctors advise, he carries on writing music; well, who needs ears to listen to a whole symphony?”
Philip Kerr, A Man Without Breath
