School Leavers

Cover“I once read somewhere that Sean Connery left school at age 13 and later went on to read Proust and Finnegan’s Wake and I keep expecting to meet an enthusiastic school leaver on the train, the type of person who only ever reads something because it is marvellous (and so hated school). Unfortunately the enthusiastic school leavers are all minding their own business.” From The Last Samurai by Helen DeWitt. I feel like this almost every day, although maybe not always in reference school leavers… What about you?
