Recently, I read a book named Keep theaspidistra flying written by George
Orwell. The book influences me a lot because the story hassomething that
touches my heart. The story talks about a man who wants tobe a poet and who abandons many well-paying jobs to pursue his dream of being a poet. I havea similar experience of quitting a very good job in order to be awriter. Also, the man in the story is lack of money because he works as a bookstoreassistant and thus has a very low salary. He lives in a shabby apartment andsometimes have no money to buy food. Again, I've got similar experience. I oncelived in a cramped apartment alone and had no money. Thebook is important to me because it touches me and gives me encouragement to persist.
