Hier verheug ik me op.
Dit is een titel die ik zonder internet vast nooit ontdekt zou hebben. De Guardian is er in elk geval positief over:
The Uncommon Reader is a gloriously entertaining comic narrative, but it is also much more: a deadly serious manifesto for the potential of reading to change lives, for its ability to broaden horizons, to imagine oneself in others' shoes, and to enable one - or should that be One - to break out from the constraints of upbringing, class and education and lead the life you've always wanted. And, Bennett ponders, who might need that more than the Queen?
Wat een leesbevordering!
