The Uncommon Reader: A Novella
by Alan Bennett
"The Queen hestitated, because to tell the truth she wasn't sure. She'd never taken much interest in reading. She read, of course, as one did, but liking books was something left to other people. It was a hobby and it was in the nature of her job that she didn't have hobbies."(p 6)
"You don't put your life into your books. You find it there."
"Above literature?...Who is above literature? You might as well say one was above humanity."
