I was really moved by this recent story on This American Life called "Just South of the Unicorns."
A teenager runs away from home to move in with someone he's never met, his idol, the person he respects most of all — a fantasy writer named Piers Anthony.
I was never a big sci-fi/fantasy fan. I escaped to non-fiction—history, curios, philosophy—instead. But I certainly understand the need to escape from your day-to-day reality, with the desire to reset the clock with some extended quietness with text.
I can't wait for the summer.
