Ar do mar, por Paul Auster

"It was four o'clock in the afternoon when I took off my boots and felt the sand against the soles of my feet. I had come to the end of the world, and beyond it there was nothing but air and waves, an emptiness that went clear to the shores of China. This is where I start, I said to myself, this is where my life begins."

Moon Palace, Faber and faber, 1989, p. 298.
