A pencilled note inside the front cover of A. Breton's surrealist romance Nadja indicates it was purchased and read in April 1987, and a similar note inside the back cover conveys this quote:
"The event from which each of us is entitled to expect the revelation of his own life . . . is not earned by work."
Final sentence of the novel:
"Beauty will be CONVULSIVE or will not be at all."
