Meet Carlos

If there was a time when books weren’t part of my life, I’ve blocked it from memory. There are few more telling possessions of an individual than his or her book collection. I think of each book as telling three stories—the one that’s printed on the pages, of course; the book as object—the look and feel of the pages, the smell, the design, the typeset; and, lastly, what the book reveals about us. Just picking up any book on my shelves immediately takes me back to the time and place and what was going on in my life when I acquired it. For this reason, I tend to gravitate toward books that convey experiences, with characters whose trajectories take me to an undiscovered place. To me, a great book is not so much about what happens in it but about how well it resonates after the end.
