Leviathan by Paul Auster, a generous loan from Milane’s shelf. My deep and high opinion of this author is reaffirmed again! This book again, as in Mr. Vertigo the beauty and complexity of friendship and love, but it goes to other terrains and talks about the life of two committed writers trying to express their disillusionment about the established system (the book is set in the beginning of the Reagan era), their friendship and complicated incidents within their of families, couples and their bohemian social life in New York City. Most importantly, again, this book deals with finding meaning in our fragmented world, the ephimerality of identity, and the possibility of personal and identity reinvention.
