In this gorgeously wrought and imagined novel an investigative journalist interviews those who knew or thought they knew Alejandro Bevilacqua a brilliant South American writer and author of the masterpiece i In Praise of Lying i Through the diverse voices of those close to Bevilacqua and their divergent portraits of the man at the center of this literary examination of truth the reader holds the power of final judgment In i All Men Are Liars i Alberto Manguel pay homage to literature s shapeshifting inventions in which our own ideas or the world and the people around us are given agency and projected onto these brilliant virtuoso pages, In this major collection of his essays Alberto Manguel whom George Steiner has called the Casanova of reading argues that the activity of reading in its broadest sense defines our species We come into the world intent on finding narrative in everything writes Manguel landscape the skies the faces of others the images and words that our species create Reading our own lives and those of others reading the societies we live in and those that lie beyond our borders reading the worlds that lie between the covers of a book are the essence of i A Reader on Reading i br br The thirty nine essays in this volume explore the crafts of reading and writing the identity granted to us by literature the far reaching shadow of Jorge Luis Borges to whom Manguel read as a young man and the links between politics and books and between books and our bodies The powers of censorship and intellectual curiosity the art of translation and those numinous memory palaces we call libraries also figure in this remarkable collection For Manguel and his readers words in spite of everything lend coherence to the world and offer us a few safe places as real as paper and as bracing as ink to grant us room and board in our passage, No description available, From Atlantis to Xanadu and beyond this Baedeker of make believe takes readers on a tour of more than realms invented by storytellers from Homer s day to our own Here you will find Shangri La and El Dorado Utopia and Middle Earth Wonderland and Freedonia Here too are Jurassic Park Salman Rushdie s Sea of Stories and the fabulous world of Harry Potter The history and behavior of the inhabitants of these lands are described in loving detail and are supplemented by more than maps and illustrations that depict the lay of the land in a host of elsewheres A must have for the library of every dedicated reader fantasy fan or passionate browser Dictionary is a witty and acute guide for any armchair traveler s journey into the landscape of the imagination br
