Summary
"Wendy Lesser's extraordinary alertness, intelligence, and curiosity have made her one of America's most significant cultural critics", writes Stephen Greenblatt. In "Why I Read" Lesser draws on a lifetime of pleasure reading and decades of editing one of the most distinguished literary magazines in the country, "The Threepenny Review", to describe her love of literature. As Lesser writes in her prologue, "Reading can result in boredom or transcendence, rage or enthusiasm, depression or hilarity, empathy or contempt, depending on who you are and what the book is and how your life is shaping up at the moment you encounter it."
