Torgny Lindgren
“I lack the disposition for realism. . . . as soon as I have managed to put together a suitable number of realistic people and placed them in reasonably realistic surroundings where they can live realistic lives, they start to fiddle about, they behave as if they had never before been in contact with real life, but had only lived in a fantasy world. They commit frightful crimes, they die and are resurrected, they ascend to heaven and allow themselves to be misled into all the foolishness the language happens to lead them to, till at last, with oaths and curses, they escape from the planned novel.”
Torgny Lindgren

Dimitri Verhulst
“Op de zeeën drijven stuurloos schepen waarvan de volledige bemanning het leven heeft gelaten en de roeiers vol schimmels en sappig in hun riemen hangen, de losse vellen vaandelend in de wind.”
Dimitri Verhulst, Godverdomse dagen op een godverdomse bol

“A propos, iemand onlangs eigenlijk nog een quagga gezien?”

“Of course it's almost ludicrously difficult to talk about art. And about beauty. Beauty is a perversion--how can you retain your self-respect when you talk about it?”
Torgny Lindgren, In Praise of Truth: The Personal Account of Theodore Marklund, Picture-Framer

Torgny Lindgren
“Books don't need to be published," Lars Högström said. "The main thing is that they should be written.”
Torgny Lindgren
