Closing Quote From and Closing Thoughts On: Jerzy Kosinki's Passion Play

"He would set the stage for the play of passion for one for whom passion was no longer a mystery and enigma. Always careful to keep his fantasy in check, so as to release the imagination of his listener, Fabian might explain the art of horsemanship, talk of strategies of combat to one for whom victory was beyond reach, chronicle the embraces of lovers to one who would embrace no more."
-Jerzy Kosinki, Passion Play, 1979

Note in the closing margin:
The idle, solitary wanderer never quite giving up on that play of passion where reason's of no avail . . . CKL
