“Every love story is a ghost story.”
David Foster Wallace, The Pale King 2011. [The same line appears in “Tri-Stan: I Sold Sissee Nar to Ecko”, a story included in Brief Interviews with Hideous Men. D.T. Max, DFW’s biographer, explains that the author would attribute the phrase to Virginia Woolf, but it apparently comes from Christina Stead.]
