Explore the politics and ethics of reading in this galvanizing book that empowers readers to engage with fiction, art, and buried histories. Smart, funny, and sometimes profane, the book reimagines the classics, builds a moral case against settler colonialism, and celebrates everything from popular TV shows to contemporary poets. It's a deeply personal and urgent intervention into global discussions about why reading matters, inviting readers to embrace a more daring solidarity and riskier intimacy with themselves and others.
