Impulse-bought this at a used bookstore, and read a quarter of it before I got home. The first half was amusing and I enjoyed it. It was written when the author was in his twenties and was under house arrest. The second half was written when the author was in his sixties, I think, and I found it dull. I’m not sure whether it was due to the fact that this time he was voluntarily confining himself, or because he was old and rambling (as opposed to young and rambling), but I liked it much less.
