The Blunderer - Patricia Highsmith

‘I love you too much – do you understand? I shouldn’t even tell you that, should I? I love even being near you – being near you – geographically. And that’s all I am now.

WTF?!?

 

That's not just insta-love and insta-lust, that's insta-insanity. 

 

Apart from Jeff, is there any sane, sensible character in this?

 

Btw, I bet Highsmith had fun writing this line: “I love even being near you – being near you – geographically. ”
I can just picture her rolling her eyes at the line, taking a swig of something, and typing it out.
