"It's always been private occasions

that make me feel connected to the joy and sorrows of the world, often in the form of communion with writers and musicians I'll never meet in person. Proust called these moments of unity between writer and reader 'that fruitful miracle of a communication in the midst of the solitude.' His use of religious language was surely no accident."
