Wednesday’s Piece

“Living with someone when you are in love with someone else seems to me the essence of prostitution – and when he is your husband it is worse, because there is no escape. I lie rigid and try to make my mind a dark blank and remind myself that it is right and proper and that this is what I am here for. And the loneliness goes out of everything and I fell ill….”

One thought on “Wednesday’s Piece

  1. The book you refer to is my all time favourite. I first discovered it in the 1960’s and wrote out some of the beautiful phrases. I’ve tried to find out about the author but have found nothing. I wonder why the book is written about by J and G Lentell.
    Thank you.
