The Savage Detectives, page 308.

Stream of consciousness narration frustrates me. At the end of every chapter I feel the need to put down the book, in order to give myself the time I need to separate my consciousness from the last person before moving on to the next.

I always wonder, which way is it that the author would want? Does he/she want me to struggle against the tide of humanity, lapping at my subjectivity’s shore? Or should I brace myself and keep reading, so that this one becomes the next and the next becomes them all.
