If you could sum up Farther Away in three words, what would they be?
Heartbreaking. Inspiring. Isolating.
What other book might you compare Farther Away to and why?
Robinson Crusoe, mainly because he is reading Robinson Cruose in the first essay in Masafuera but also because several essays are on books and/or nature, respectively birds. It's very much about survival.
What about Jonathan Franzen and Scott Shepherd ’s performance did you like?
I liked the storytelling of the first essay Farther Away in particular, and the commencement address because it felt like sitting around the fireplace with a friend who is telling you about a real journey and the ups and downs of it all, as well as his reflections.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
The first essay stays with me a lot. It did make me cry. It's about the loss of David Foster Wallace, experiencing extreme isolation on the island, finding oneself, and reading Crusoe...all amazing
