Lola Rennt

Annabel Lee

And this maiden she lived with no other thought than to love and be loved by me

Her Fearful Symmetry
Lola Rennt
"Robert had been born in Islington.  He had never lived anywhere but London.  His geography of London was a tangle of emotional associations.  Street names evoked girlfriends, schoolmates, boring afternoons playing truant and doing nothing in particular; rare outings with his father to obscure restaurants and the zoo, raves in East-London warehouses."

"When she focused her attention on a boy, that boy always seemed to her unfinished, dull, absurd.  She was used to the profound intimacy of her life with (her twin), and she did not know that a cloud of hope and wild illusion is required to begin a relationship." 

"Apartment.  A place to be apart."
