The NYTBR interviews Geoff Dyer.
What do you plan to read next?
Sarah Bakewell’s “At the Existentialist Café”: a group biography or history of Heidegger, Sartre, De Beauvoir, Camus, Merleau-Ponty and others who have meant a lot to me intellectually even if I didn’t understand what many of them were saying.
Paradoxically, any understanding is meaningful. As a teenager, you haven't had time to read everything. By the time you understand what corresponds with which text, it's too late.
