  • Epigraph: The ideal pluralism is when everybody exists on the margins, because the centre, which is like the centre of writing itself, is an absence. -- Brian Castro, 'Necessary Idiocy...and the Idea of Freedom'
  • Epigraph: Literature's space is like the place where someone dies: a nowhere...which is here...Literature's space shelters nothing within it: it is also called le vide, 'the void'. -- Maurice Blanchot, The Space of Literature
