Full description for A Reading Diary
While travelling in Calgary, Alberto Manguel was struck by how the novel he was reading seemed to reflect the world he was living in. An article in the daily paper would be suddenly illuminated by a passage in the novel; a long reflection would be prompted by a single word. He decided to keep a record of these moments, rereading a book a month, and formed "A Reading Diary": a volume of notes, impressions of travel, of friends, of public and private events, all elicited by his reading.
