“At least nine characters”

The narrator says that it’s wrong to “to explain what happens in the country by the character of its inhabitants”:

Robert Musil, The Man Without Qualities. 1930–1943. Trans. Sophie Wilkins (New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1995).

Elaine and I are climbing Mount Musil, in two volumes, no lines, no waiting. See also Mount Proust.
