Notes

  • Dedication: To Mary-Ellen, with love.
  • Epigraph: 'Alarmed within by the distant thunder of the god, bewildered from without by an irresistible excess of appearances, the object of such violent treatment has only just room to stand on the narrow space between two worlds, until suddenly a neutral little event inundates his monstrous condition with innocence.' Rainer Maria Rilke.
