“Writers, such strange, ludicrous beings …”

 

index     Enrique Vila-Matas,  Dublinesque (New Directions,  2012 )

…it’s a well-known fact: writers are resentful, jealous to the point of sickness, always penniless, and finally a load of ungrateful wretches, whether they’re poor or completely poverty-stricken. (76)

…writers, such strange, ludicrous beings, so self-centered and complicated, and such idiots, most of them. (76)
