well as always your hints only help when you already know what book it is...
Flann O'Brien: The Third Policeman ?
Graham Greene: Our Man in Havana?
Walter M Miller Jr: A Canticle for Leibowitz ?
....to be continued....

the quote itself contains the title of the book (a synonym though)....and in the US, it's got another title, more well-known...:D..omg..you're taking even longer than Robert Peary...

was hard work Posted Image
and here is something new:
"If I were ever to go on a trip, I think I should make written notes of the slightest traits of my character before leaving, so that when I returned I would be able to compare what I was and what I had become. I've read that there are travellers who have changed physically and morally to such an extent that even their closest relatives did not recognize them when they came back."

something by Murakami ?

Il dort. Quoique le sort fût pour lui bien étrange,
Il vivait. Il mourut quand il n'eut plus son ange;
La chose simplement d'elle-même arriva,
Comme la nuit se fait lorsque le jour s'en va.

middle life crisis :P or a symbolic trip or journey towards enlightenment? I'll start with the French authors I read- Celine's Voyage au bout de la nuit (Journey to the End of the Night) or Proust's À la recherche du temps perdu (In Search of Lost Time)
