DeLillo, the master
"The true life is not reducible to words spoken or written, not by anyone, ever. The true life takes place when you are alone, thinking, feeling lost in memory, dreamingly selfaware, the submicroscopic moments. He said this more than once, Elster did, in more than one way. His life happened, he said, when he sat staring at a blank wall, thinking about dinner".
Don DeLillo, Point Omega
