The book has some really brilliant paragraphs but it's the whole ensemble that makes it worth reading. A portrait of an artist in the urban rutine of bars, pubs, cafes, old friends, new friends and long walks over the tarmac. I loved the fact that the drink tea and not coffee at the cafes, the tarmac, as well as every window, is always wet cause it always rains in Manchester not matter the season and a ballpen it's called a Biro ... so I enjoyed the british side of it quite a lot.

"Ich lese ein Buch, das 'Hunger' heisst", sage ich.
"Und worum geht's?"
"Hm ... wie soll ich das erklären ... also, was bisher geschah: Ein Mann ... hat Hunger ... dann isst  er was und ist satt ... dann kriegt er wieder Hunger, und dann isst er nichts, und dann kriegt er noch mehr Hunger ... dann verkauft er sein Unterhemd und isst. Und dann ist er satt."
"In letzter Zeit rede ich einfach gern mit dem Spiegel oder meinem Bauchnabel", erwiderte ich.
Die Nächte sind für die Füsse, die Tage für den Kopf.
Ich bemühe mich sehr, nicht zu existieren, ich bemühe mich zu schreiben und darin zu existieren.
