Product Details


“I was electrified by his celebration of narrative, empathic imagination, and startling insights.”  
Joe Hill, author of The Fireman
“David Ulin’s soul is up for grabs. The digital era has sunk its hooks into him, and politics has corroded his spirit. But Ulin has found a powerful and instructive form of resistance in his lifelong love of books. The Lost Art of Reading makes us consider our own souls in this crucial moment, and reminds us why books matter. A necessary and deeply human read.” 
Claire Dederer, author of Love and Trouble

Praise for the first edition of The Lost Art of Reading:

“I am a reader who, during a few anxiety-driven years, found myself caught up in a dizzying attempt to be connected and “in the know”, leaving very little time for reflection. I believe that Ulin is speaking to that kind of reader. His essay is an exhortation to inspire the distracted reader to remember what they once knew, as opposed to an argument to convert the resistant to a reading life.”
