De buste van de keizer en andere verhalen by Joseph Roth
Rate this book
Clear rating
Ik vond dit tegenvallen. Het (al dan niet schijnbaar) naïeve van sommige vertellingen bevalt mij niet zo. Roth is ook wel heel zwaar van het telling in plaats van showing. Misschien komt het daardoor, maar ik vind zijn verhalen daardoor vaak iets ...more

Henry James
“She often appeared at my chambers to talk over his lapses; for if, as she declared, she had washed her hands of him, she had carefully preserved the water of this ablution, which she handed about for analysis.”
Henry James, The Coxon Fund

Penelope Fitzgerald
“What seemed delicacy in him was usually a way of avoiding trouble; what seemed like sympathy was the instinct to prevent trouble before it started. It was hard to see what growing older would mean to such a person. His emotions, from lack of exercise, had disappeared almost altogether. Adaptability and curiosity, he had found, did just as well.”
Penelope Fitzgerald, The Bookshop

Elspeth Davie
“The absorbed, disapproving regard of the middle-aged woman for her own face disappeared as he came up. ('The Snow Heart')”
Elspeth Davie

Robertson Davies
“The body is the inescapable factor, you see. You can keep in good shape for what you are, but radical change is impossible. Health isn't making everybody into a Greek ideal; it's living out the destiny of the body.”
Robertson Davies, The Rebel Angels

Penelope Fitzgerald
“Florence had noticed one or two eccentricities in herself lately, which might be the result of hard work, or of age, or of living alone. When the letters came, for example, she often found herself wasting time in looking at the postmarks and wondering whoever they could be from, instead of opening them in a sensible manner and finding out at once.”
Penelope Fitzgerald, The Bookshop
