How to Read Now, by Elaine Castillo

Staff Pick

Castillo follows her acclaimed novel, America Is Not The Heart, with these timely and powerful essays on the morality and necessity of reading. Couched under the overarching theme of reading as a moral act--something which many readers fail to consider, distracted by the sheer performative nature of reading and/or the blind worship of the canon--these pieces are peppered with Castillo's biting humor and profound observations, which together constitute a blueprint for how we can become better readers, in several senses of that term.
