Product Details

Praise

Ferociously intelligent. . . . Schwartz obeys the laws of gravity, but also manages to float free of the Earth at times, and almost to fly. -Frederick Busch, Los Angeles Times Book Review

“This slender rhapsody on the joys of reading will be gobbled up like the rarest and finest chocolate.” -Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post

“Provocative. . . . A moving memoir. As Schwartz defines for herself why she reads, she helps others understand their literary obsessions.” -John Espey, Chicago Tribune

“I was at home in this book as if I was, in fact, at home in one of our old big chairs reading myself into life.” -Grace Paley, author of Long Walks and Intimate Talks

“Lynne Sharon Schwartz successfully maps the gray areas of a passion some might find hard to classify as a true addiction: reading books. The accuracy of Schwartz’s insight made this addicted reader, at least, feel uncomfortably well seen; she nailed me, page after page.” -Stacey D’Erasmo, New York Newsday
