On Time with Old Friends

April 19, 2012

One should read the books one loves every few years, or at least keep a mental spreadsheet of their protagonists’ and authors’ ages. Otherwise we might catch them only when we’re young and in awe and unable to grasp everything, and then only when we’re older and we think we know more and we’re almost unable to approach these friends without a patronizing and condescending attitude. Better to schedule the opportunity to meet again as peers before it’s too late.
