Hold On To The Sun by Michal Govrin
Weight: 8.8 oz
Method of Disposal: Donating or giving away
I admit it. This was a book I bought at the Border’s going out of business sale. It was like an addiction. I just started grabbing books off the shelves at random. The end was just days away and I could buy something like 5 books for the price of one! The Dismantled Project faded away, and my animal instinct took over. I can remember and relive the feelings that washed over me then because it must be a lot like what I am going through now. I am trying to quit smoking AGAIN, and it is the third day. If there was a closeout sale on cigarettes, I would not be able to resist. Hell, if I walked into a gas station I would not be able to resist. That is why I am trapped at my house, nauseated, and semi-delusional. I am afraid to leave this cave and go into the world again and yet I will have to. Soon. Tomorrow even.
The part of the book I recommend is the very first essay. It is entitled “The Journey to Poland.” Let me know what you think.
