I have 2 more to add to my February reading list -
here - I devoured it almost immediately. I didn't realise until I started reading that I have read his "A Pound of Paper" which I loved. This book is about living in Paris, walking around it, experiencing the unseen, being surprised at how others see your city. The author is talked into becoming a walking tour guide, as he knows so many stories about literary figures and what they did where. Really great stuff.
"In human terms, the construction of a large cathedral mound by a termite colony is equivalent to a million, blind-folded people joining forces to build a skyscraper covering eight city blocks and towering over a mile into the sky"
