Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said

Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said is a paranoid science fiction novel by Philip K. Dick.
Scrutinizing him, she said, 'Maybe your're not a celebrity; maybe I've reverted back to my delusional period. They said I probably would, sometime. Sooner or later. Maybe it's later now.'
'That,' he pointed out, 'would make me a hallucination of yours. Try harder; I don't feel completely real.'
She laughed.

The Big Sleep

The Big Sleep is a detective novel by Raymond Chandler.

"You know what Canino will do? Beat my teeth out and kick me in the stomach for mumbling."

See The Simple of Art of Murder for a previous post about Raymond Chandler.

A Simple Heart

A Simple Heart is a story by Gustave Flaubert, it's one of my favorites. Sad, funny, droll - a person, place and time that has no particular intrinsic interest but despite that (or perhaps because of it) a great story.
