Old Books

Most books grow old like their authors. Their words, phrases, and scenes become obsolete; their plots and characters do as well. But we can still learn from old books. We see what once was and come to understand what might be next. Old books have their place in the world just like all of us. 

I wrote this note while reading Cloud Cuckoo Land and thinking about two of my books from the 1980s and 1990s, The Mosquito Test and Play On!
