the last book I ever read (The King by Donald Barthelme, excerpt eight)

from The King by Donald Barthelme:

“The roof is leaking,” said Guinevere, “although I don’t suppose you care.”

“I have never yet owned a castle where the roof did not leak at one point or another,” said Arthur. “The entelechy of roofs is to leak, something the architect Griegsmore taught me long, long ago. Why, madam, may I ask, are you favoring me with this information? Have we no staff in this blasted place?”
