Quote of the Day for July 30th

No doubt I shall go on writing, stumbling across tundras of unmeaning, planting words like bloody flags in my wake…. 


Alexander Trocchi

Scottish novelist Alexander Trocchi (born July 30, 1925) edited the literary magazine Merlin in the early 1950s, which published the work of Samuel Beckett, Henry Miller, Pablo Neruda, and Jean-Paul Sartre, among others. Trocchi’s own writing chronicled heroin addiction (Cain’s Book), which plagued him for most of his life. He is also best known for his dark novella (Young Adam) and pornography classic (Helen and Desire) as well as for his involvement in avant-garde movements of the mid-20th century.
