I finished Don Quijote de la Mancha Today after a combination of listening to the audiobook and reading the 1,600 page paper volume. It was a bit of a slog, but hearing ‘the end’ this morning was incredibly rewarding. It seems a good time to read a story about the blurry line between reality and fantasy, truth and lies. In a world where strongman authoritarian presidents are increasingly attempting to subvert the press until only their version of “the truth” can be heard, it seems a perfect time to be reminded that this is not a new problem. People have been seeing what they want to see, willingly or by way of mental illness, for a long, long time.
