November 26, 2015, Thanksgiving afternoon -- Reading Alexandre Dumas

On Haight Street
He is reading The Count of Monte Cristo, by Alexandre Dumas. He reads it once every two years or so. He reads it again and again not, he said, for the revenge, but because, of the way the character's heart is warmed and he's allowed to be human again.

I asked him it was his favorite book and he said he didn't know if he had a favorite book, but the book he has read the most is Fool, a parody of King Lear by Christopher Moore.
