A JOURNAL OF EXTREMITY

Lydia Davis, "The Little Man"

“The moment when a limit is reached, when there is nothing ahead but darkness: something comes in to help that is not real. Another way all this is like madness: a made person not helped out of his trouble by anything real begins to trust what is not real because it helps him and he needs it because real things continue not to help him.”

Roberto Bolano, "Gomez Palacio"

From "A Very Argentinian Mystery," by Jon Lee Anderson
