First pages: The Art of Reading
My next nonfiction work, The Art of Reading, will be out in Australia in 2016.
I'm currently editing the first page proofs. It's a finicky job, like patching up the wings of angels dancing on pins. At a certain point, often unnoticed, the manuscript becomes a book; the hypothetical succession of glyphs becomes something for a shelf.
And after all the toil, the labour still isn't done: the reader had to keep the angels tap-dancing.
I'm looking forward to the show.
