have you read the life of pi by jann martel? there’s no better reason than it is one of the greatest books written. its scope is leviathon.

in the author’s note at the start of the book, he thanks the canadian council for the arts like this: “if we citizens do not support our artists, then we sacrifice our imagination on the altar of crude reality and end up believing in nothing and having worthless dreams.”

take note of that, national endowment for the restricted arts.

if you make it through, you will be rewarded by part 3, in which a brilliant interview will make you see stars and suddenly you will be better if you were worse before.
