Quoting a quotation, from "The Club Dumas" (1993)
by Arturo Pérez-Reverte, p.41:
... an unopened bottle of Bols on a shelf
between Memoirs of Saint Helena in two
volumes and a French edition of The Red
and the Black that he lay before him on RED_ON_BLACK
the table. He tore the seal of the bottle
and leafed casually through the Stendhal
as he poured himself a glass of gin.
Rousseau's Confessions was
the only book through which his
imagination pictured the world.
The collection of Grande Arme'e
reports and the Memoirs of
Saint Helena completed his
bible. He would have died for
those three books. He never
believed in any others.
