Yann Martel has most thoughtfully been choosing books I've already read during the past few weeks, so I'm easily able to keep up! But I think I want to revisit Rilke. I read this book some years ago (I think as a young university student) so it's time to read the letters again. Does anyone have any memories of this one? I read it for a class and liked it, then for a few years found it too over-used and clichéd, and then I seemed to have grown past that and liked it again. Strange; I'm going to reread it more carefully now, and see where I stand currently!
