"For a long time, February had been a hard month for me, dominated by fighting the blues and waiting for spring to come. My first February in Oxford was a real zinger. I fought it by reading, something I did a lot of at Oxford, with no particular pattern except what my studies dictated. I read hundreds of books. That month I read John Steinbeck's The Moon Is Down, partly because he had just died and I wanted to remember him with something I hadn't read before. I reread Willie Morris's North Toward Home, because it helped me to understand my roots and my 'better self.' I read Eldridge Cleaver's Soul on Ice and pondered the meaning of soul."
