    PDF Ben Lerner Ú PDF Leaving the Atocha Station PDF ´ Leaving the Kindle Ú teachenglishthailand.co.uk leaving download, atocha book, station kindle, Leaving the epub, Leaving the Atocha Station eBookWhat's curious about this book is the attention and adulation it's received It's memoir dressed up as a novel that is the author's lengthy reflection on a character that shares many traits with the author He hails from the same town attended the same school etc This characterauthor incessantly lies to acuaintances for no apparent reason and then is nauseated In fact page after page the guy is literally not figuratively nauseous or vomiting Many critics seemed to think this book was an astute look at the artist's connection to art but actually he had little to say on it The protagonist considered himself a fraud as he smoked hash and lied throughout a Fulbright year in Spain and never gave a damn about the people around him It would be unfair to tell you how it ended though
