I don't think you have any control over who you are-it just happens. Sometimes in the morning I wake up and don't know who I am. I have to get out of bed and open the closet door, and then I think, oh yes, I'm the girl in the red dress.

I still had the sensation I was playing a role but it didn't bother me any more, because I knew now that everybody else played a role too; it was just that some played them well and some badly.

It wasn't a matter of convincinv these people or anybody else that I was something I was not, or even trying to make myself into something they wanted me to be. It was a matter of myself into something I would decide; of asking myself what was the best I had and what I could make with it, and then working as hard as I could to make it.

My mistake had been that I had never really thought it out and come to terms with what I was doing. I had thought I was trying to be something I was not or change myself into an image of something I had only a rather vague notion of, a kind of a half-baked Platonic form of what I thought I was supposed to be.

Taxis! Streets! The city was full of people hurrying somewhere, people who had appointments, jobs, friends, complications, projects, crises. The emotion and intensity of it bewildered me, and the thought that I was going to have to live and move in this world and hurry around like these people made me tired.

It seemed that a desire to end an intolerable existence was considered evidence of insanity. It was really a philosophical question.

At times I cogitated (vaguely) over whom this was happening to. I was aware that there were words like me and I but for the present their meaning lay elusively just out of grasp, like a telephone number that has slipped through your mind.

I wondered if the others felt it too, the pointlessness of everything and the impossibility of changing the way you were, or whether they had somehow managed to come to terms with it in their own way.

The books were a private part of me that I carried inside and guarded and didn't talk to anybody about; as long as I had the books I could convince myself I was different from the others and my life wasn't quite as stupid and pointless. It wasn't that I thought I was improving myself, it was just that I was doing something they didn't understand and this was enough to make me feel different from them.

It was part of myself that was my enemy; I still had a childish illusion that the flesh on my own bones was somehow unique and precious to the universe, in some obscure corner of my mind I want others to love me and make exceptions for me simply because I felt heat and cold, pain and loneliness as they did.

Great stuff - reminds me a little of Pincher Martin by Golding at times (which is a good thing, as I love that book). Certainly deserves a thorough un-Burying

first few pages felt a little melodramatic to me, but then it quickly and rapidly improved. Very good stuff indeed.
