Anti-Work Ethic

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."
