Some 40 years ago I sometime saw one of John Fowles's novels, that is, "The French Lieutenant's Woman" in many good bookstores in Bangkok but then I didn't have any motive to read it. Today (June 3) I came across this memoir/essays and it's my delight to know he had used this title, "I Write Therefore I am" since 1964 when I was still a student in a secondary school (Year 12).

Therefore, again, I think this book should be interesting enough for me to read since he did echo such an inspiring title from "I think, therefore I am" famously proclaimed by Descartes, one of the great French philosophers hundreds of years ago.
