Beware the book that lives. What lives must consume. That book is more than paper and ink. The pink and the name, Beloved, they are con artists, total imposters.
He's a long way from the Renaissance, but as others speak here of him, I may be allowed two quotes from the great man: I am strongly in favour of using poisoned gas against uncivilised tribes.
