This book has been through a lot when I have it on me. It’s been the novel I read when I’m on the bus into the city of Philadelphia to pass the time. Once or twice during these journeys I’ve forgotten an umbrella, so the book, residing in my backpack, has been soaked in multiple downpours while I wait for the bus in the pouring rain. The book is very much well worn, but it’s also been very much been loved.
Highly Illogical Behavior is one of the more unique books I’ve read, since it’s not every day you encounter a book where the main character has agoraphobia, which is the fear of crowded spaces or enclosed public places. In fact, the protagonist, Solomon, hasn’t left his house in three years. He has no friends and plans on keeping things this way for the rest of his life.
