Suspended Sentences

My second Modiano.

I read Dora Bruder back in 2004. I had no idea who Patrick Modiano was back then, but I remember very well how I managed to pick up his book, together with Amos Oz' Where the Jackals Howl, at a Book Sale outlet near the LRT Station in Pedro Gil because I was looking for something to read to ease the boredom of waiting in line for my interview at the US Embassy.

Now that Modiano is a Nobel laureate, I think it's the right time to start reading his works again.

Booked: The Complete Works of Shakespeare

I bought this book for a sonnet--err song ($3) during one of my forays at a local flea market. Not bad for an 1878 illustrated edition of The Complete Works of the Bard, eh? 

William Shakespeare would have been 449 today.

This Old Guitar

the sole witness 
during those rare 
times where i can 
my heart on 
my sleeve.
