“Does it turn into Tolstoy at page 205?”

This quote below is from an absolutely delightful radio talk with Richard Littlejohn and the always amazing Will Self. Here is the edited transcript.

LITTLEJOHN: But you haven’t read the book in its totality and you have to read the book in its totality.

SELF: Why?

LITTLEJOHN: In order to understand it.

SELF: Does it turn into Tolstoy at page 205?

LITTLEJOHN: No it doesn’t turn into Tolstoy. I don’t set out to be Tolstoy. It is a much more complex book than that.

SELF:Than Tolstoy?
