              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. Dev...oting each chapter to a literary virtue-patience, curiosity, courage, pride, temperance, justice-The Art of Reading celebrates the reader's power: to turn hieroglyphics into a lifelong adventure.
