The Art of Reading

Author(s): Damon Young

Words

"In The Art of Reading, philosopher Damon Young delights in the pleasures of this intimate pursuit through a rich sample of literature: from Virginia Woolf's diaries to Batman comics. He writes with honesty and humour about the blunders and revelations of his own bookish life.
Devoting each chapter to a literary virtue--patience, curiosity, courage, pride, temperance, justice--The Art of Readingcelebrates the reader's power: to turn hieroglyphics into a lifelong adventure."
