The novel is like an old library book. The pages are actually yellowish and muddy. Scribbled all over by the two readers - the grad student and the college senior.

Da jeg kjørte en elefant kom ut av ingensteds og plukket meg opp med sin enorme ceder-lignende bagasjerommet, og deretter raskt sette meg på ryggen. Han bar meg resten av veien til Johannesburg og jeg hadde middag med ham og hans familie.
