Laura van den Berg, On Reading

"I read to inhabit other worlds and to find things in those worlds that are at once unfamiliar and recognizable, like glimpsing someone you once knew off in the distance. I love books that make visible elements that I have vaguely sensed or perceived in the world as I know it, but never knew how to name."

Laura van den Berg is the author of What the World Will Look Like When All the Water Leaves Us (Dzanc Books), which was recently longlisted for both The Story Prize and the Frank O’Connor Award. Visit her website here for more information.}
