I read this book as a teenager and was stunned to find someone writing in my own language. I hadn't known it was possible. Re-reading it now, decades later, I still love it. There is so much in here that is interesting, impressive, passionate and meaningful. I read today where a contemporary writer said that originality is overrated. I could not disagree more. This book is exhibit A.
