"A good book is a book that hits you hard, I think. One that leaves you thinking about it when you're not reading it. A good book is a book that makes you think about the world, and not just the book itself. A good book also tends to have lots of filthy sex and swear words. A good book weighs about a pound. A good book will call you on a Sunday afternoon just to say hello. How have you been? I was just having a beer and thinking about you."
