Book Quotes: 2666

Chinatown, 2010

From a passage about Russia in 1939 from the book 2666 by Roberto Bolaño:

He mentions names Reiter has never heard before. Then, a few pages on, he mentions them again. As if he were afraid of forgetting them. Names, names, names. Those who made revolution and those who were devoured by that same revolution, though it wasn’t the same but another, not the dream but the nightmare that hides behind the eyelids of the dream.
