Thoughts on { Reading | Roberto Bolaño (2004)



Arthur Tress, Girl with Dunce Cap. New York, 1972

“Reading is like thinking,
like praying,
like talking to a friend,
like expressing your ideas,
like listening to other people’s ideas,
like listening to music (oh yes),
like looking at the view,
like taking a walk on the beach.”


“What a relief to give up literature, to give up writing and simply read.”

Roberto Bolaño, 2666 (2004)

Werner Bischof, Reading by candlelight, Rovaniemi, Finland, 1948
