A neat collection of short stories mostly about "lonely, fantasizing women”. Three stories stood out in my reading ‘A Nail, A Rose’ which starts darkly (main character is attacked by a stranger with a hammer) and then takes a warm turn by the end, fo ...more

Vladimir Nabokov
“Sleep is the most moronic fraternity in the world, with the heaviest dues and the crudest rituals. It is a mental torture I find debasing... I simply cannot get used to the nightly betrayal of reason, humanity, genius.”
Vladimir Nabokov, Speak, Memory

Vladimir Nabokov
“The cradle rocks above an abyss, and common sense tells us that our existence is but a brief crack of light between two eternities of darkness. Although the two are identical twins, man, as a rule, views the prenatal abyss with more calm than the one he is heading for (at some forty-five hundred heartbeats an hour). I know, however, of a young chronophobiac who experienced something like panic when looking for the first time at homemade movies that had been taken a few weeks before his birth. He saw a world that was practically unchanged-the same house, the same people- and then realized that he did not exist there at all and that nobody mourned his absence. He caught a glimpse of his mother waving from an upstairs window, and that unfamiliar gesture disturbed him, as if it were some mysterious farewell. But what particularly frightened him was the sight of a brand-new baby carriage standing there on the porch, with the smug, encroaching air of a coffin; even that was empty, as if, in the reverse course of events, his very bones had disintegrated.”
Vladimir Nabokov, Speak, Memory

“One is always at home in one's past...”

Stephen Crane
A Man Said to the Universe

A man said to the universe:
“Sir, I exist!”
“However,” replied the universe,
“The fact has not created in me
A sense of obligation.”
Stephen Crane, War Is Kind and Other Poems

“It is thanks to my evening reading alone that I am still more or less sane.”
W.G. Sebald, Vertigo
