The novel is also a socialist critique of bourgeoisie culture and the elevated status that classical music enjoys in the Viennese society that Erika grew up in. I hate what I fear. There is not the smallest role in the story for any halfway decent person. This is one of my favorite books.

Dewey Decimal Erika herself does not wear it, but merely strokes it admiringly at night. Erika expresses this latent violence as well and need for control in many other scenes throughout the book. Erika takes large instruments on trains so that she can hit people with them and call it an accident, or kicks or steps on the feet of other passengers so that she can watch them blame someone else. She is a voyeur who frequents peep shows , and on one occasion catches a couple having sex in a park, being so affected that she urinates.
