'And above everything else she hated the dérangement.'

"[Gerda] lived in the twilight of her curtained living-rooms, and dreaded the sun, the dust, the crowds of townsfolk in their holiday clothes, the smell of coffee, beer and tobacco; and above everything else in the world she hated getting hot and upset." (Thomas Mann, The Buddenbrooks)
