The Story Behind the Tile
“Once a reading of a book is under way, and we sink into the experience, a performance of a sort begins…
We perform a book - we perform a reading of a book. We perform a book, and we attend the performance…
It is not that our narratives necessarily tell us something true about the world (though they might), but rather that the practice of reading feels like, and is like, consciousness itself: imperfect; partial; hazy; co-creative…
As readers, we are both the conductor and the orchestra, as well as the audience.”
-Peter Mendelsund, What We See When We Read
A reader lives a thousand lives. -George R.R. Martin
