the last book I ever read (Virginie Despentes's Vernon Subutex 1: A Novel, excerpt fourteen)

from Vernon Subutex 1: A Novel by Virginie Despentes (translated by Frank Wynne):

“I left the bag with the tapes at a friend’s place, her name is Emilie. If you managed to track me down, I’m sure you’ll find her too. Well, anyway, good luck … you can drop me here.”

“Out of the question. I’m not leaving you on your own.”

He wanted to say “I would prefer not to.”
