Goodbye, Stranger

(1926)
A novel by

 
A man who don't want lovers. He wants enemy to take him cruelly and shake the fairy out of him. Here the extract :

"I don't want lovers. I want an enemy to take me cruelly and shake the fairy out of me - and leave me a man - and leave me sad but wise, like a man."
Lena would not admit that she was surprised and puzzled, so she said nothing. She scarcely ever replied, which saved her a great deal of trouble and humiliation. Surprise did not show in her face, which was set in a mould of sadness and hostility.
"You could teach me wisdom," said Clifford. "You may not be at home in the world, but you don't look outside it. You are an enemy to fairies. I wish I could lie in your arms and so learn wisdom."
Lena's heart beat more quickly. But she said nothing at all.
"Oh hell," said Clifford. "I forgot. Two Chinese are having tea with us. I wish Daley wasn't so damn kind."

Daley is his wife. You can now imagine this story...
