    " Truly a unique read. Not quite the brainstorming of Joyce, but very intimate and introspective. I have never read so much and learned so little; althewhile thoroughly enjoying it. It took me one year to get through all the volumes, but it was truly worth it. "

    " Un libro dopo l'altro, principale compagnia di mesi all'estero, e quello che resta è la voglia di ricominciare da capo, ancora, e ancora, e ancora. "
