Quotes by Christopher Fowler  (?)

“It was true that the city could still throw shadows filled with mystifying figures from its past, whose grip on the present could be felt on certain strange days, when the streets were dark with rain and harmful ideas.”
Christopher Fowler, Ten Second Staircase

“Clutter, either mental or physical, is the sign of a healthy curiosity.”
Christopher Fowler, The Memory of Blood

“I hate the endless admonishments of a nanny state that lives in fear of its lawyers. While colonies of dim-witted traffic wardens swarm about looking for minor parking infringements, nobody seems to notice that our very social fabric is falling apart.”
Christopher Fowler, The Victoria Vanishes
