seven months ago my son was born. since then i haven’t read a single book and only a few articles from the various periodicals i receive. natalie suggested this as an easy read and billed it as a russian “ender’s game”. she was half right but it was no ender’s game. from the author: i’ve stopped being interested in other people’s opinions, since i realized that other people wouldn’t be interested in me anyway; they wouldn’t be thinking about me but about my photograph, and with the same indifference i feel for other people’s photographs.
