“What do you think a human being is?” [Wallace] Shawn asks in The Fever. “A human being happens to be an unprotected little wriggling creature . . . without a shell or a hide or even any fur, just thrown out onto the earth like an eye that’s been pulled from its socket, like a shucked oyster that’s trying to crawl along the ground. We need to build our own shells.”
from the article Catnip in June 1, 2009 New Yorker magazine.
I loved Wallace Shawn in My Dinner with Andre … in my all-time top ten list of movies.
