Literature? Useless

"What is the use of Alice in Wonderland?...Literature is beautiful by being, by uselessly being. It is an inert, beautiful thing worth preserving and clinging to...Books we love become part of the way we see the world. We see through the eyes the book has given us. That is how books change the world, one reader at a time."

- Salman Rushdie in Arkansas

  • Thanks for posting the links to Rushdie. His coverage is less than it should be.
