On the efficacy of literature

03/25/2011

“Kafka said something like, ‘A book must be an ice axe to break the sea frozen inside us,’ but maybe we can expand this notion further and say that a book is an ice axe to break the sea frozen between us.”

– John Warner, in the commentary on the match that went down March 24th at TMN’s Tournament of Books.
