This author reminds me of James Frey

“I like the dark part of the night, after midnight and before four-thirty, when it’s hollow, when ceilings are harder and farther away. Then I can breathe, and can think while others are sleeping, in a way can stop time, can have it so – this has always been my dream – so that while everyone else is frozen, I can work busily about them, doing whatever it is that needs to be done, like the elves who make the shoes while children sleep.”
— Dave Eggers (A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius)
I love finding the books that are cleansing for my soul. They aren’t the books that make me feel accomplished or erudite. They are simply cathartic to read.
