That's awesome! ☺️
For anyone who's thinking of participating, it's really quite a great book, if you like Lolita you'll probably like this as well. I think I first heard about it in an old Christopher Hitchens cspan interview when he was asked about what he's reading atm,.. years later, when I noticed the title while browsing Latvia's National Library, I knew I had to read it, and have been wanting to reread it for quite some time now.
One of my fave quotes from the book:
"I have never really got used to being on earth. Sometimes I think our presence here is due to a cosmic blunder, that we were meant for another planet altogether, with other arrangements, and other laws, and other, grimmer skies. I try to imagine it, our true place, off on the far side of the galaxy, whirling and whirling. And the ones who were meant for here, are they out there, baffled and homesick, like us? No, they would have become extinct long ago. How could they survive, these gentle earthlings, in a world that was made to contain us?"
- John Banville, The Book of Evidence
