All roads were right for me, a wrong road was an event for me. 45 As it happens, this is also the way in which Deleuze and Guattari understand schizophrenia which they treat as a concept as much as an illness. I have suggested that Molloy inhabits a realm of schizoid subjectivity which can be named and identified.
