Glass animals

I've blogged quickly over at The Complete Works II site, about something that caught my eye in WG Sebald's 'A Place In The Country'. There was one other choice quote I wanted to draw your attention to, when he discusses Rousseau discussing Becher:

"Using procedures that he keeps shrouded in much mystery, he has carried out experiments that have convinced him that man, like all animals, is glass and can return to glass."

There's a thought for your Christmas decorations.
