Am I old enough

May 23, 2004

I picked up a book at the library on a whim the other day. I do not know if I am old enough to read it yet.

So far, I like the first two pages of Proust's Remembrance of Things Past, but I also recall reading these words before - I think I started the book in my 20s and was unable to get very far in it.

They say that Proust's masterpiece is a book for old men, not a book for children or even mature adults. I have been feeling a little geezerly lately, so I will see if I can get going on the book.

I skidded out of Don Quixote a few days ago - after I return it to the library I will add it to the reading list as a "did not finish."

Proust might go better.
