Matt de la Pena
Philosophy: Impersonal anxiety; refuge among anemic ideas.
Emile M. Cioran
Dignity: the doomed man's final refuge.
For a spy novelist like me, the Edward J. Snowden story has everything. A man driven by ego and idealism - can anyone ever distinguish the two? - leaves his job and his beautiful girlfriend behind.
