David Barringer, On Reading

"A book is the delivery system for a hallucinogen you ingest through the eyes and digest in the mind. Reading allows one imagination to taste the inside of another."

David Barringer is the author of There's Nothing Funny About Design, American Home Life, Johnny Red, and Emigre 68: American Mutt Barks in the Yard. Visit his website here for more information.}

  1. I am only responding by chance, because I was before. I like to be next to these words, which function like cypresses. Like a lane. Like a deserted road in a natural setting where you get to lie down. You get to hallucinate the sky. Who would not want to lie down? Who wouldn't, in this formulation, open their stupid mouth?
