Damon Young The Art Of Reading Salon says
Join ABC RN's Sarah Kanowski for a Salon of emerging writers along with Damon Young for the Brisbane launch of 'The Art of Reading' (Melbourne University Publishing).

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.
