Low on gas after taking a long detour on his road trip, John finds a small café, the only establishment in a remote area that seems to be in the middle of nowhere. In my opinion, not only does the story speak of one, but also of the design of the whole book. Everything is finished with drawings and the cover gives you the feeling that you are reading a children's book than one that asks difficult questions. And that also makes it easier to focus on the topic, I suppose.
Since you don't want to read the biography of an intellectual.
