"I wasn’t thinking about the effects of silence on someone who is obsessed with you."

James Lasdun has been stalked, and has written about it in a new book, Give Me Everything You Have.

My first uncharitable thought is that this sounds way more interesting than any of his fictional tales of middle-class psychological jousting in 2009’s It’s Beginning to Hurt.

My second thought is that I have marshaled vast silences.
