Sample text

The fact that the woman in The Letter L was neither living nor dead did not pose an obstacle in the unravelling of its phenomena. In a world in which symbols have the emotive power of actions and agents, in which for the first time living bodies gain their freedom to live within their shadows, which are more alive and more real than bodies, the materials from which I construct objects can be made of paper or celluloid. In the world of dreams where I choose to operate, celluloid is flesh and paper is water.

Those who survived were telling each other breathlessly of their sensations during the catastrophe, and one could read an unbearable satisfaction on their faces.

Returning home, I produced the envelopes and pasted the riddles at random onto the torso and one leg of the doll. Next I attached another doll's head upside-down against its groin.
