Alberto Manguel examines metaphors of readers and reading from literatures
across centuries and the globe, from the ancient epic Gilgamesh to the
World Wide Web, from the adventures of Ulysses to the tragedy of Emma
Bovary, and he considers how these metaphors reflect the cultures that
invent them.
