After completing Zadie Smith’s book of essays (see previous posts), I wasn’t sure what to read next. My eventual choice was The Art Lover by Andromeda Romano-Lax (published as The Detour elsewhere). It’s been sitting on my bookcase for a few months since I bought it on a trip to Canberra.
After reading the first three chapters during my work lunch break I decided to find out more about the author.
She has a wordpress site and while skimming through its contents I came across the title of something she wrote for another blog: “The purpose and joys of rereading” – if you look back to my previous post about Zadie Smith you’ll see why this title jumped at me.
I couldn’t resist taking a look at the article to find out why this term “rereading” is beginning to haunt me.
Cue the Twilight Zone music!
