Erik talks a lot about the

Erik talks a lot about the fragmented self in this book and about putting the pieces together. This reminds me of Warren's All The King's Men, where the character contunally states how we are all pieces until we fall in love and the person who loves us picks up our pieces and puts us all together. This idea (or image) has always stuck with me and I can't help but connect this to Erik. He is so alone throughout this novel and maybe his pieces could become a whole if he were to find love.
