Have you ever found your heart’s desire and then lost it? I had seen myself, a portrait of myself as a reader. My childhood: days home sick from school reading Nancy Drew, forbidden books read secretively late at night. Teenage years reading -trying to read- books I’d heard were important, Naked Lunch, and The Fountainhead, Ulysses and Women in Love… It was as though I had dreamt the perfect lover, who vanished as I woke, leaving me pining and surly.
