The Fall - Albert Camus at the disco

A lovely line from Albert Camus’ novel “La Chute” (The Fall) that may have some residence for clubbers perhaps?

“Sometimes, late in these nights when dance, mild intoxication, my fury, everyone’s violent abandon, would throw me into a wearied and full rapture, it seemed to me, at the edge of fatigue, and in the space of a second, that I finally understood the secret of beings and of the world. But the fatigue disappeared the next day and, with it, the secret…”

It is still a great shame that Swedish director Ingmar Bergman was never able to realise a film version of the novel.
