Quotable [No Defection, without Infection – Oct, 2012]

End Zone (Don DeLillo)

– Highlight Loc. 527-31  | Added on Saturday, May 12, 2012, 09:42 AM


To complete the day truly I had to remember to think of Milwaukee in flames. I was doing a different area every day. This practice filled me with self-disgust and was meant, eventually, to liberate me from the joy of imagining millions dead. In time, I assumed, my disgust would become so great that I would be released from all sense of global holocaust. But it wasn’t working. I continued to look forward to each new puddle of destruction. Six megatons for Cairo. MIRVs for the Benelux countries. Typhoid and cholera for the Hudson River Valley.
