I felt myself surrounded by millions of abandoned pages, by worlds and souls without an owner sinking in an carkos of darkness, while the world that throbbed outside the library seemed to be losing its memory.

While women tended to be described as angel and men devil, most characters held both in different shades. While you’re working you don’t have to look life in the eye.
