At one magical instant in your early childhood the page of a book b b that string of confused alien ciphers b b shivered into meaning Words spoke to you gave up their secrets at that moment whole universes opened You became irrevocably a reader Noted essayist Alberto Manguel moves from this essential moment to explore the year old conversation between words and that magician without whom the book would be a lifeless object the reader Manguel lingers over reading as seduction as rebellion as obsession and goes on to trace the never before told story of the reader s progress from clay tablet to scroll codex to CD ROM, This huge anthology offers a kaleidoscope of brilliant writing from the Magi of the imagination Alberto Manguel has selected fantastic tales from life on the edge of the twilight zone with stories from Marguerite Yourcenar Herman Hesse Italo Calvino Vladimir Nabokov and many many more This is a collection of irresistible masterpieces many of which have never before appeared in the English language br br i Fantastic literature i Manguel writes in his introduction i makes use of our everyday world as a facade through which the undefinable appears hinting at the half forgotten dreams of our imagination Unlike tales of fantasy fantastic literature deals with what can be best defined as the impossible seeping into the possible what Wallace Stevens calls b black water breaking into reality b Fantastic literature never really explains everything it thrives on surprise on the unexpected logic that is born from its own rules i br br Contents br br House
