The Voyeur's Motel

Gay Talese in The New Yorker:

Finally, I will be able to satisfy my constant yearning and uncontrollable desire to peer into other people’s lives. My voyeuristic urges will now be placed into effect on a plane higher than anyone else has contemplated.

Mr Gerald Foos writes about his mundane depravity in the manner of a cartoonish super-villain. It's probably part of why I found this remarkably non-judgemental account of his history disturbingly entertaining.
