What People are saying about this

E. M. Cioran
The Crack-Up is a novelist's "season in hell" — by which we have no intention of minimizing the scope of a testimony in itself overwhelming. A novelist who wants to be nothing but a novelist undergoes a crisis that for a certain time projects him outside the lies of literature. He wakens to certain truths that devastate his awareness, the repose of his spirit — a rare event in the world of letters where sleep is de riguer, an event that in the case that concerns us has no always been grasped in its true signification.
(E.M. Cioran, from Anathemas and Admirations)
