Coetzee Woos Me Finally

One line about the main character of Disgrace, Professor David Lurie:

He has always been a man of the city, at home amid a flux of bodies where eros stalks and glances flash like arrows.

And then one of his thoughts:

To me certain animal-welfare people are a bit like Christians of a certain kind. Everyone is so cheerful and well-intentioned that after a while you itch to go off and do some raping and pillaging.

He is a complicated man, probably more evil than good. And totally unlike any of us and totally the same.
