He grew very fond of the lizard. (Wednesday Quotation)


The agent told him that he would see doves and plumed quail, but during all the time he lived there, he saw only a few large, black velvet spiders and a lizard. He grew very fond of the lizard. ~ Narrative regarding Homer Simpson (Yes Homer Simpson, but no, not THAT Homer Simpson).  From The Day of the Locust

  1. It's been awhile since I read Nathanael West. I apparently wrote short posts on Miss Lonelyhearts and The Day of the Locust on my old blog, but I barely remember them.

    1. Yeah...this was an unusual novel, not one of my favorites...but West is still worth a read.
