—Christy Wampole, Associate Professor of French, Princeton University, USA, and author of Rootedness: The Ramifications of a Metaphor
“In this book Christopher Schaberg asks us to consider the work of literature not so much as an antidote to ‘post-truth’ political culture in the USA as an alternative way of life. Here literature figures as lively engagement with the world, a practice of enthusiasm and commitment.
—Stephanie LeMenager, Barbara and Carlisle Moore Distinguished Professor in English and American Literature, University of Oregon, and author of Living Oil: Petroleum Culture in the American Century
“This rapidly cascading kaleidoscope of lovely readings and thoughts about reading, by the generous and imaginatively mercurial Christopher Schaberg, amounts to a guidebook for the significance of the Humanities in visualizing different futures.”
—Timothy Morton, Rita Shea Guffey Chair in English, Rice University, and author of Humankind
