Más sobre padres e hijos

Books began, in my case, when my parents read to me, so I knew from the start that reading must be a “good” thing.

Later I exploited this faith of theirs in the essential goodness of literature to plot my escape from the suffocating world in which they lived and wanted everyone else to live.
