"The pleasure of my company" av Steve Martin

ISBN 0-7868-6921-6 | Hyperion, 2003 | 163 sidor

Daniel resides in his Santa Monica apartment, living much of his life as a bystander: He watches from his window as the world goes by, and his only relationships seem to be with people who barely know he exists. He passes the time idly filling out contest applications, counting ceiling tiles, and estimating the wattage of light bulbs. It is through Daniel's growing attachment to Clarissa, and to Teddy, that he finally gains the courage to begin to engage the world outside, and in doing so, he discovers love, and life, in the most surprising places.

"Det var många år sen jag läste skönlitteratur på engelska så jag har antagligen legat av mig en aning. Eller så är det helt enkelt boken som inte är någon höjdare. Får jag möjlighet ska jag försöka läsa den på svenska när den kommer ut senare i höst på B. Wahlströms förlag."
