David L. Ulin with Paul Constant

Los Angeles book critic David Ulin is here for this Sunday afternoon conversation with Seattle book critic Paul Constant (of the Seattle Review of Books). This is occasioned by the re-issue of David Ulin’s still timely The Lost Art of Reading from Seattle’s Sasquatch Books. A new introduction, afterword and subtitle - Books and Resistance in a Troubled Time - grace this edition which comes over a decade after it was first published.

“I was electrified by his celebration of narrative, empathic imagination, and startling insights.”   —Joe Hill.

“David Ulin’s soul is up for grabs. The digital era has sunk its hooks into him, and politics has corroded his spirit. But Ulin has found a powerful and instructive form of resistance in his lifelong love of books. The Lost Art of Reading makes us consider our own souls in this crucial moment, and reminds us why books matter. A necessary and deeply human read.” —Claire Dederer.
