I Need to Read this Book

I was, once again, on the NPR page and I came across this article about a new book entitled The Use and Abuse of Literature by Marjorie Garber. It's her take on why literature is here to stay despite all of the thoughts to contrary that are prevalent in today's society. One of the quotes from the article that I really like is:
Books are labeled as dangerous "precisely because [they] can enrich the mind, challenge, disturb, and change one's thinking," 
Definitely want to see if I can't pick this up sometime in the next few months.
