"Truth is never pretty, that is just mathematicians' sentimentality. And the pursuit of it does not make for pretty people. Truth can only be found in the cellars and sewers of the human mind."

Truth is something that anybody can claim to be telling: the BNP, Fox News, The Labour Party, the Socialist Worker Party. The reason why my post tonight is so short is that I've been busy writing an account of my experience as a door-to-door salesman in America. The prose is spare and the storytelling's extremely elliptic, but I've decided that that's the only way to be truthful about the experience.
