Immensely lazy day. I have begun reading a book called 'The Captive Mind' by Csezlaw Milosz. The following appeared on the second page, a reference to 'Insatiability' by Stanislaw Igancy Witkiewicz, instantly ruining my bath and my new book as I am now only interested in reading the latter!

'The whole book was nothing but a study of decay: mad, dissonant music; erotic perversion; widespread use of narcotics; dispossessed thinking; false conversions to Catholicism; and complex psychopathic personalities.'

Perhaps I will put reading to the back of my mind for the rest of today. I have almost finished a short story about the terminally ill and the Irish, so I’ll hurry on with that instead.
