We enter into books as if into a conspiracy; for company, of course, and narrative, and romance; for advice on how to be decent and brave; for a slice of the strange, the shock of the Other, the witness not yet heard from, archeologies forgotten, ignored, or despised; and also for radiance and transcendence, that radioactive glow of genius in the dark. — Tillie Olsen from Tell Me a Riddle (1961)
