My real-time review of OMENSETTER’S LUCK by William H. Gass HERE. Trump was born in this book.
When I real-time review THE TUNNEL, my comments will appear in the thought stream below….
…now returned from 1933?
“All human minds, as they move about over the face of the earth, are in touch with a dark reservoir of our race’s psychic garbage. Just as all the thrilling and vibrating thoughts that have animated human organisms survive the deaths of those organisms, so all the heavy, cloddish, murderous, desolate thoughts, in which free will and faith and happiness perish like asphyxiated gnats, roll themselves in a foul torrent into a great invisible planetary Malebolge. This Malebolge is always present and near, a little way below the surface, for all our human minds; and it only needs certain occurrences, or certain arrangements of matter, to cause an odious and devastating effluvia from its surface-scum to invade the arteries of our consciousness.”
— from ‘The Glastonbury Romance’ (1933) by John Cowper Powys
