A Long Ac­quain­tance

Reader's Digest Asia Pacific - - Letters - ARTHUR HAGOPIAN

An un­abashed fan, I re­mem­ber ex­actly where and when I picked up my first copy of the Reader’s Digest magazine. It was more than 50 years ago, at a sec­ond-hand book­shop in the Old City of Jerusalem. It was most def­i­nitely a lucky chance en­counter. The shop, out­side the Cathe­dral of the Holy Sepul­chre, was run by a Mus­lim shoe­maker, who cob­bled leather and pur­veyed lit­er­a­ture at the same time.
