Quote of the day – great writing department

February 27, 2007

“Its pointlessly grandiose dimensions suggested the pretensions and insecurities of recent riches rather than real power and permanence, an impression strengthened by the large quantity of and low quality of the decorative details, which betrayed a vulgar terror of the unadorned and the asymmetrical.”

From Michael Dibdin’s Cosi Fan Tutti – An Aurelio Zen Mystery.
