Personal Quote:

The tradition I was born into was essentially nomadic, a herdsmen tradition, following animals across the earth. [My] bookshops are a form of ranching. Instead of herding cattle, I herd books. Writing is a form of herding, too. I herd words into little paragraph-like clusters. See more »
