Description

As a child, Andrew Relph had a reading disability; now he is a psychoanalyst, and professionally adept in the art of conversation. Not Drowning, Reading is a work of literary non-fiction - a memoir about the art and the gift of reading. Relph's essays show how one might map a life through reading. From Amis to Bellow, Blake to Herzog, and Shakespeare to Woolf, these essays ask why it is that books are so important to us, and why our relationships with authors and characters can be as vital as any we form in 'real life'.show more

"Andrew Relph's passion for living multiple lives through his reading is deeply moving. The conversation about literature that he opens up in this book is one that few readers or writers will be able to resist joining." --Robert Dessaix, author, "Arabesques: A Tale of Double Lives"show more
