'Strange, long lives'

21 March 2022

'After all, one of the great things about books is that they don't disappear after the first year of their publication - barring floods and thieves, they can loiter forever on your shelves, waiting to be picked up and rediscovered, manic publicity cycle be damned. They can be revisited, loaned out, traded, forgotten and found. They can have strange, long lives.'

Emily Temple, managing editor at Lit Hub and author of The Lightness.
