Pedro Juan Gutiérrez — Dirty Havana Trilogy

I found one of Pedrojoán's notebooks lying around. He had been reading lots of books all at once. The notebook was full of quotes, copied from Herman Hesse, García Márquez, Grace Paley, Saint-Exupéry, Charles Bukowski, and Thor Heyerdahl. A good mix. That combination, plus rock, will keep a fifteen-year-old boy in a state of constant torment, and he'll never be bored. Which is good, I say. The important thing is to not be bored.
It's impossible to understand everything. Life isn't long enough to enjoy and understand all at the same time. You have to decide which is more important.
