He would stop to look through windows at gilded interiors, through lacework illustrated with elaborate designs: flowers, acanthus leaves, cupids with bows and arrows, lace deer; and the interiors, hollowed out in massive and shadowy altars, seemed to him veiled tabernacles.”  Jean Genet, Our Lady Of The Flowers – he also likes to write about cock.  And it’s more hardcore than William Burroughs shooting his own wife.
