Dawn Powell is apparently one of those unsung heroes, a favorite of Hemingway and Vidal. This seems to be the best-loved of her books by slim consensus; other nominees (in case I can't find this) include something about locusts and A Time To Be Born.

Poco después de las dos, un caballero de mediana edad, de cabello rojizo, entró apresuradamente en el Café Julien, se sentó a la mesa de Alexander como tenía por costumbre, pidió café y coñac como tenía por costumbre, rogó que le trajeran papel de carta como tenía por costumbre, agitó una estilográfica y se dispuso a escribir.
Quotations

En las grandes bibliotecas, los profesores estudiaban la manera de hacer desaparecer los libros; los políticos proclamaban que leer y escribir era innecesario, además de ilegal, ya quela acción de la palabra escrita en el cerebro humano puede inducir a pensar; un proceso subversivo que a todas luces incita a la rebelión contra el liderazgo robótico. Todos los conocimientos necesarios para la generación de soldados podían difundirse a través de altavoces; era indispensable conservar la vista para practicar la puntería y las manos para empuñar las bayonetas. ¿Por qué habría de tolerarse que una bomba enemiga aniquilara nuestra cultura acumulada cuando éramos capaces de hacerlo nosostros mismos por decisión gubernamental? [p. 14]
