March 22, Friday evening -- Reading William Burroughs

After work at Norton's Vault
Reading Junky, by William S. Burroughs. Before this he was reading Jack Kerouac and this was a natural transition. Also in his bag, which he pulled out to show me, was A Path with Heart: A Guide Through the Perils and Promises of Spiritual Life, by Jack Kornfield, which merges Eastern and Western ideas.

His favorite book is The Sun Also Rises, by Ernest Hemingway and, he, he said, getting back to the question later, The Leaves of Grass, by Walt Whitman.

When he was younger, the books that got him into reading were The Lord of the Rings series and The Chronicles of Narnia, by C.S. Lewis.
