Edward St. Aubyn -- a quote

"Irony is the hardest addiction of all. Forget heroin. Just try giving up irony, the deep-down need to mean two things at once, to be in two places at once, not to be there for the catastrophe of a fixed meaning."

Quoted from At Last, a novel by Edward St. Aubyn, reviewed by Francine Prose in the NY Times Book Review, 2/12/2012 .
