Ruined by reading was a very different book than I expected. I didn’t expect this memoir on the affect of reading to the author’s life to be a keep but it continually asked thought provoking questions about the nature of power and our imagination.

Schwartz questions the very nature and content of a book and the past-time of reading while also questioning our cultural expectations around pleasure and discipline.

I very much enjoyed this book.
