Introduction to Ask the Dust by John Fante - Charles Bukowski

This quote was added by lynchrobinson
I pulled book after book from the shelves. Why didn't anybody say something? Why didn't anybody scream out? I tried other rooms in the library. The section on Religion was just a vast bog to me. I got into Philosophy. I found a couple of bitter Germans who cheered me for a while, then that was over. I tried Mathematics but upper Maths was like Religion: it ran right off me. What I needed seemed to be absent everywhere.
