I was a fan. Not a big one, but I read about his 100 favourite book a few years ago and he seemed to have a good eclectic taste. There is a good quote from Andrei Tarkovsky in the article:
” A book read by a thousand different people is a thousand different books”
This, for me, seems to resonate with the subjective nature of self within us all. We really do live in separate worlds and each have a different perspective.
