The Innocent Reader: Reflections on Reading and Writing

$29.99

$29.99

In a book whose charm and erudition recalls 84 Charing Cross Road or Margaret Atwood's Negotiating with the Dead, one of our most prolific and respected authors, Debra Adelaide, shares a joyous and plaintive glimpse into a reading and writing life.

This mercurial work is much more than memoir, much more than manual. It is an attempt to capture the spirit of a reader from someone who has dedicated their career to fostering that spirit, both in themselves and a generation of Australian writers.

A marvellous book for any bibliophile or aspiring writer.
