Thanks, JA, for reminding me to nudge Kierkegaard back onto the reading list last night.

Ames pulled out letters he’d written to an Australian friend in 1990. He explained they’d bonded over their appreciation for German writer Thomas Mann and that Amesh had, for a time, imagined himself a “young gentleman” out of The Magic Mountain or Brideshead Revisited. “I couldn’t keep up with you and Thomas Mann and I thought you would find me lacking as an intellectual foil,” he read. “I felt embarrassed I wasn’t as interested in Mann and this made me insecure. I know this sounds ridiculous, but this is the truth.” (via Snail-mail celebration as Rumpus starts subscription service where readers get letters from notable authors | Capital New York)
