Quote of the Day (Phyllis Rose, on Reading a Great Novel)

''Reading a great novel is like talking to the dead. There is no need for a psychic. When you read the words of a dead or absent master, they sound in your brain and he or she is present in the room.''—Phyllis Rose, The Shelf: From LEQ to LES: Adventures in Extreme Reading (2014)
