The Scientific Indian

Harold Pinter

A good view of the man at IHT. It was only in the recent years – since my marriage and especially after the birth of our daughter – that I developed the sensibility that Pinter so masterfully exposed: the menace and violence of everyday life, as Horace Engdahl called it ‘the precipice under everyday prattle’. It was a bliss to be unaware, but now, I can’t sleep some nights. One other primate caught in this modern world’s uncertainties.
