If those who look in see me condescend to barricade the door, they will know too much and crowd in to overcome me. C. to support herself, her daughter, and her writing by working as a file clerk for the British embassy. This book is referenced not just by the title, but because a few lines of it are quoted at a key point in the story.Pero lo que es su mayor virtud, el hecho de ser tan intensa, tan particular, tan personal, es también el único "pero" que puedo encontrar, porque es tan "tan" que una no deja de tener la sensación que se está perdiendo mucho.

Pero es una auténtica joya, una joya frágil que todo lector tiene que manipular con cuidado, porque es una joya con ángulos afilados y una se puede fácilmente cortar con ella.
