About the Book
"What I want is to be admired by others, praised by others. To be forgotten when you die, that's horrible. Oh if my inventions could only have some success! But I will die one day, and the trains will keep on running, and people will go to the theatre like they always did, and I'll be dead, good and dead... dead for life."
