‘Steep’

I wanted to be bookish and failed. I wanted to steep myself in European literature. There I was, in our modest garden apartment in a nondescript part of Queens, steeping myself in European literature. The word “steep” was the whole point. Once I had decided to steep myself, there was no need to read the work.
