«The place you will come to may be black, something you would disown, but if you have found yourself there, that is so far home; you will either domesticate that, naturalize yourself there, or you will recover nothing.» (Stanley Cavell) | setadespedida@yahoo.co.uk

Colecção de mãos

«It had always been Tobias method to approach his subject by way of the body. When he’d first set himself the task of writing about Jack Maggs, he had first produced a short essay on his hands, pondering not merely the fate of the hidden tendons, the bones, the phalanges, the intercarpals which would one day be liberated by the worms, but also their history: what other hands they had caressed, what lives they had taken in anger.»

Jack Maggs, de Peter Carey, Faber and Faber, p. 303
