The Secret Room (excerpt)

“The fragile wrist is encircled by an iron bracelet. The arm is almost in darkness, only the hand receiving enough light to make the thin, outspread fingers clearly visible against the circular protrusion at the base of the stone column. A black metal chain running around the column passes through the ring affixed to the the bracelet, binding the wrist tightly to the column.”

‘The Secret Room’ (1962) in Snapshots, Alain Robbe-Grillet p. 69
