Af en toe een fragment - Diana Athill

They were both great gossips - and when I say great I mean great, because I am talking about gossip in its highest and purest form: a passionate interest, lit by humour but above malice, in human behaviour. We used often, of course, to talk about writing - his or other people's, and eventually mine - but much more often we would talk with glee, with awe, with amazement, with horror, with delight, about what people had done and why they had done it. And we munched up our own lives as greedily as we did everyone else's.

Een fragment uit Stet van Diana Athill over de schrijver Brian Moore en diens eerste echtgenote.
