I've never quite felt compelled to leave a review on Amazon before, but if my meagre contribution convinces even one person to read this book, I would be very happy indeed. It has been a while since I last read The Vagabond's Breakfast, but the impression it left is just as sharp, and it's influence undiminished. As somebody who has always been enchanted by the freedom and infinite possibility of just wandering with no destination as such, this book satiated my expectation and far surpassed it. This is book about so much more than merely wandering; in fact, it touches upon quite profound understandings of time, memory and identity, as well as discussing literature in ways that were hitherto unknown to me. The Vagabond's breakfast introduced me to Borges, as it happens. I recommend this book heartily to all.
