Author Gary Shteyngart, in today’s New York Times Book Review:

“It’s so nice to turn the pages of a real printed book with a small, sweet creature like my son, Johnny, by my side. I’m reminded of my father reading to me as a child, my head against his chest, letting the heavy Russian words thump in my ears. I only hope I generated the same kind of megawatt warmth against his skin as my son does against mine.”
