Books & Sex

Egon Schiele, Liegende Frau Mit Roter Hose Und Stehend (Reclining Woman with Red Pants and standing) 1912.

“Books are finite, sexual encounters are finite, but the desire to read and to fuck are infinite; it surpasses our own deaths, our fears, our hopes for peace.”
Roberto Bolaño speaking of Stéphane Mallarmé’s quote The flesh is sad—and I’ve read every book.
