"Having written "The End" to this story of my life, I find it prudent to scamper back here to before the beginning, to my front door, so to speak, and to make this apology to arriving guests: 'I promised you an autobiography, but something went wrong in the kitchen. It turns out to be a diary of this past troubled summer, too! We can always send out for pizzas if necessary. Come in, come in.'
I am the erstwhile American painter Rabo Karabekian, a one-eyed man."
- from Kurt Vonnegut's Bluebeard. Fantastic book so far.
