farouche \fa-ROOSH\, adjective:
1. Sullenly unsociable or shy.
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
I don’t know if I’d be so arrogant as to call myself a writer but this still seems apt for the cantankerousness of the contributors of this here blog.
