I got this on the bargain book corner, a hard copy marked down so much that it tempted me to bring it home, even if I'm already surrounded by waiting to be read books.
I like Paul Auster when I was still very young. I thought, this is what a literate man sounds like.
Not sure if this is the case, as there is no one around me who like books as much as I do. So, I had that illusion, that I could read something that is literature, not just pop fiction like crimes and fantasy. I could read literature even my interested is more into hard science, economic, bibliography.
I hope this is a good one.
