Reminder of new review of Zencore! by Jetse de Vries:
This is what I call a 'rite of review', a very personal experience (or struggle) between book and reader.

It includes these words;
"I am forced to admit I have lost it (probably in the pub), and only got about a third of the way through reading it."
