Library copies of Journal du Voleur by Jean Genet, Euroboxes

I once found a drawing of Poseidon in a copy of Journal du Voleur. He was bearded and bare-chested, and behind him was a temple with stairs leading down to the waterfront, and a sun with triangle rays. Written under it was a line from Oscar Wilde: I can resist anything but temptation. The books here are all the copies of Journal du Voleur available from Norwegian libraries. What I sometimes wonder about temptation is whether it’s an invitation from the world, or if it’s just a game I play with myself.
