A Life with Books by Julian Barnes
Julian Barnes has written a wonderful pamphlet exploring, explaining and celebrating a life with books. He writes: "I have lived in books, for books, by and with books; in recent years, I have been fortunate enough to be able to live from books. And it was through books that I first realized that there were other worlds beyond my own; first imagined what it might be like to be another person; first encountered that deeply intimate bond made when a writer's voice gets inside a reader's head..." It was featured in The Guardian on Saturday 30th June.
