Every book is an image of solitude. It is a tangible object that one can pick up, put down, open, and close, and its words represent many months, if not many years, of one man's solitude, so that each word one reads in a book one might say to himself that he is confronting a particle of that solitude.
~Paul Auster, The Invention of Solitude
