Summary
We are not born readers, we learn to turn words into worlds. But why is fine writing lauded while excellent reading is ignored? In The Art of Reading, philosopher Damon Young reveals 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-curiosity, patience, courage, pride, temperance, justice-The Art of Reading celebrates the reader's power: to turn shapes on a page into a lifelong adventure
