DESCRIPTION:
A working father whose life no longer feels like his own discovers the transforming powers of great (and downright terrible) literature in this laughoutloud memoir.Andy Miller had a job he quite liked, a family he loved and no time at all for reading. Or so he kept telling himself. But, no matter how busy or tired he was, something kept niggling at him. Books. Books he'd always wanted to read. Books he'd said he'd read, when he hadn't. Books that whispered the promise of escape from the 6.44 to London. And so, with the turn of a page, began a year of reading that was to transform Andy's life completely.This book is Andy's inspirational and very funny account of his expedition through literature: classic, cult and everything inbetween. Crack the spine of your unread `Middlemarch', discover what `The Da Vinci Code' and `MobyDick' have in common (everything, surprisingly) and knock yourself out with a newfound enthusiasm for Tolstoy, Douglas Adams and `The Epic of Gilgamesh'. `The Year of Reading Dangerously' is a reader's odyssey and it begins with opening this book...
