p. 20: I took myself in my tatters to the business district and availed myself of the town's social services. In the public library, which, not incidentally, had a well-kept men's room, I read the daily papers as if informing myself of life on another planet. I thought it was more my image to the read the papers than to sit at one of the library computers.
