The Course of the Heart Quotes.

1. "Budapest is a prime site for dreams: the East’s exuberant vision of the West, the West’s uneasy hallucination of the East. It is a dreamed-up city; a city almost completely faked; a city invented out of other cities, out of Paris by way of Vienna — the imitation, as Claudio Magris has it, of an imitation."
- M. John Harrison, The Course of the Heart

2. "…there is endless despair at the centre of every narcissistic self-portrait."
- M. John Harrison, The Course of the Heart
