Description - Reading for Life by Philip Davis

Reading for Life is an anthology of poems and of extracts from prose fiction, related to a series of case-histories of individuals carefully reading, discussing their reading lives, and thinking about the intense relation of literature to their existence. It enables readers of this book to gain increased imaginative access to the works in question through seeing how they have affected equivalent readers--a novelist, a poet, a doctor, a teacher, an
anthologist, but also ordinary people, within shared reading groups in many different settings, finding help from literary texts in times of need.
