Some books I do love: The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
“Why do I care about all the wrong things, and nothing at all for the right ones? Or, to tip it another way: how can I see so clearly that everything I love or care about is illusion, and yet - for me, anyway - all that’s worth living for lies in that charm?”
