On Farouche

farouche \fa-ROOSH\, adjective:

1. Sullenly unsociable or shy.
2. Fierce.

Solitary and farouche people don't have relationships; they are quite unrelatable. If you and I were capable of being altogether house-trained and made jolly, we should be nicer people, but not writers.
    -- Elizabeth Bowen, Letter to the writer V. S. Pritchett
