Diary of an insomniac

I want you to feel the cold like I do, weep like I do, make sense of the senseless world around you like I do. I want you to imagine the unbearable lightness, futility, looseness of things past holding you back

“The Bee is the first device of its kind ever made,” Oliver told Sheila. “We produced only a hundred as samples but when it's released in August, it will take over the mobile phone market.”

Karen’s death drifts further and further from my mind, yet I feel worse with each day. My only comfort at the moment is Spinoza, my french bulldog.
C & You
Tarde Venientibus Ossa
To the latecomers are left the bones
You are in love with C. Or at least you think you are, as all things concerning love are never fully understood.

Miffed, my darlings? Indeed, you ought to be! What girls worth their frilly underthings – that every man with a pulse wants to peel off – put up with being stood up? All the same, I ask for understanding!
It is all Raymond Chandler's fault anyway. I could have been happy with anything, but at an early age I discovered Chandlerville - Los Angeles of the late thirties and forties and it didn't let go.
Close call - if not last
The afternoon was gloomy, cold and wet and I had been mostly reeling across the day. The previous evening, preceded by afternoon funeral in Mauléon, had been rather long and heavy as I had gone to bed pretty late (4 a.m.) after some orgiastic dinner at tough partners' in Cambo (the two guys who fish with me on my boat).

Dan Schneider review
One of the keys to Cochran’s success is that his book is utterly without pretense, something that Salinger’s book chokes on, from its lead character through its situations’ preciousness to its hordes of addled devotees’ wan and off-base interpretations.
The Magicians by Lev Grossman
Sam Hawksmoor review
Anyone who ever saw ‘Igby Goes Down’ or read Donna Tart's 'Secret History' would relish more. Quentin Coldwater (think Ryan Phillipe) has discontent and preppy New York down to a tee and although being miserable is every teenagers right of passage, being excessively bright with it only heightens the disillusionment. Mix in ‘The Royal Tenenbaums’ and you have the right perspective to enter the world of ‘The Magicians’.
