“Sometimes I ain’t so sho who’s got ere a right to say when a man is crazy and when he ain’t. Sometimes I think it ain’t none of us pure crazy and ain’t none of us pure sane until the balance of us talks him that-a-way. It’s like it ain’t so much what a fellow does, but it’s the way the majority of folks is looking at him when he does it.”
-from William Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying.
I need to rereadthat one. That’s the one that hooked me on Faulkner.
Right now, though, I need to read Howard S. Becker’s Outsiders first.
