Daily Dose

From The Tanners, by Robert Walser, translated by Susan Bernofsky


"'I was always in the habit,' Hedwig said to Simon in the course of the day, 'of treating you somehow as my subordinate. In their dealings with you, perhaps others do, too --you hardly give an impression of intelligence -- what people are more likely to see in you is love, and you know pretty well how that's received.'"

From Chapter 10
