Selection of texts by Carlos Granés. Forty great ideas that have changed the world. What is a great book? Does reading make us better people? Why should we devote our time to fiction? Mario Vargas Llosa responds to these questions with intense literary passion. He argues against the idea of literature as a luxury pastime, and in favour of reading as irreplaceable for forming free individuals.
