Nothing Being an Answer to the Loneliness for the Lack of Loving

"I'm trying to say something not tell a story telling stories is telling lies and I want to tell the truth about me about my experience about my truth about my truth to reality about sitting here writing looking out across Claremont Square trying to say something about the writing and nothing being an answer to the loneliness for the lack of loving."

- B.S. Johnson, in Albert Angelo (1964), taken from Dirda's review of LIKE A FIERY ELEPHANT: The Story of B.S. Johnson, in the Washington Post Book World.
