May 14, 2015, Thursday morning -- Reading Victor Hugo

At a cafe near Bernal Hill

He is reading Les Miserables, by Victor Hugo. He's been reading it for about a year now, with other books in between. When he finishes these last hundred or so pages, next up is Midnight's Children, by Salman Rushdie. 

His favorite book is Ulysses, by James Joyce, which he loves for complexity and Joyce's ability to adapt a myth into a story, and for its digressions.
