"Why did Maxwell choose books? Because when he was homeless, reading was one of the few things that helped with “the inescapable sameness of the days… Reading was such a zone of psychological relief, and also somehow of connection, that I honestly don’t know how I would have stayed as sane as I did without it. Sometimes to read was purely to pass the time; sometimes it helped me to realize that I’d had a life before homelessness, and helped maintain continuity with it, an awareness that where I was at the moment did not wholly define me.”"
