J.M. Coetzee (Waiting for the Barbarians)

"I know somewhat too much; and from this knowledge, once one has been infected, there seems to be no recovering. I ought never to have taken my lantern to see what was going on in the hut by the granary. On the other hand, there was no way, once I had picked up the lantern, for me to put it down again. The knot loops in upon itself; I cannot find the end."


  1. After a full reading, it might be time for a new tattoo.

  2. This book will appeal to your strong sense of justice incredibly.
