Hey. I know that dude!

I was reading an excellent review of Philip Roth’s new novel, The Plot Against America, when the reviewer noted a passage from one of my favorites, Heart of Darkness:

“I’ve seen the devil of violence and the devil of greed and the devil of hot desire. … But as I stood on that hillside, I foresaw that in the blinding sunshine of that land, I would become acquainted with a flabby, pretending weak-eyed devil of a rapacious and pitiless folly.”

Yes. We have seen him too….
