About This Item

This book is in good condition. There is some wear on the front, back, edges, and spine of the cover boards. There is some bumping and fraying on the cover boards. The previous owner has affixed a name label to the inside of the front cover board. The pages are yellowing and tanning, but the pages are clear of any markings.

"'Do you hear voices?' he asked. 'You think I am deaf?' 'Of course,' she said. 'I hear yours.' It was hard to keep on being civil. She was tired and he had been asking questions such a long time, days and days of incredibly naive questions. Now he was explaining that she misunderstood; he did not mean real voices. Fantastic. He was speaking, he said, of voices that were not real and yet they were voices he expected her to hear. He was something of a pest, this man, but she could think of no decent way to get rid of him. You could tell he meant well and so you tried to play the game with him, as if with a fanciful child...." - Chapter One from The Snake Pit
