"Excerpt"Very early on, I got the feeling that the principal function of books was not to distract but rather to take the measure of things. Doubtless I will never be able to locate exactly the memory of reading Don Quixote, Treasure Island, or Lazarillo de Tormes knowing nothing of literature; the books spoke inside me then, in my own language, as if they were my own memory".Article is 2172 words"
