Paperback Castles

I live on a page in a book. My name is written in a curly and swirly font, along with long descriptions of sleepless nights and filled bookcases.

The Pigeon - Patrick Süskind I will never be able to look at a pigeon the same way again. After reading this book a pigeon will always be associated with chaos, loss of identity and anxiety. A pigeon will remain the symbol of paranoia. That is how convincing Süskind writes.
This very short book (or novella?) explores what happens when a perfectly organized individual is confronted with something utterly unexpected. It can be seen as a study in comformity or repressed terrors.

"The Pigeon" tells of only one single day in Jonathan Noel's life - and yet it tells you everything you need to know.
