The Odd Tales of Irene Orgel
"Very few people are capable of being independent; it is a privilege of the strong. And whoever tries it, however justified, without having to, proves that he is probably not only strong but bold to the point of complete recklessness. For he walks into a labyrinth, he increases a thousandfold the dangers which are inherent in life anyway.” This quotation from Nietzsche is the theme of eleven original stories by Irene Orgel. No schmaltz. Wit and authority. The real thing.
