One Reader May Suffice

Any author, [Marcel] Proust wrote Jaloux, should be happy to “write for a single, exquisite reader like you,” and he added a Proustian analogy comparing Jaloux’s contact with his book to pollen intended for “a single tree…a pollen useless to all others, but for it, singular.”

–William C. Carter, Marcel Proust: A Life, p. 358
