Sunday Papers: Cornell Woolrich


"Friendship blooms quickly in the hothouse atmosphere of travel; within the space of hours, sometimes, it's already full-blown. Then just as suddenly is snapped off short, by the inevitable separation of the travelers.  It seldom if ever survives that separation for long. That is why, on ships and trains, people have fewer reticences with one another, they exchange confidences more quickly, tell all about thmselves; they will never have to see the same people again, and worry about what opinion they may have formed, good or bad."
