With so many important books out there, and thousands more being published each year, what are we supposed to do in those inevitable social situations where we're forced to talk about books we haven't read? Pierre Bayard argues that it doesn't really matter if you've read a book or not. (In fact, in certain situations, reading the book is the worst thing you could do.) Championing the various forms of non-reading, How to Talk About Books You Haven't Read is really a celebration of books, for book lovers everywhere to enjoy, ponder, argue about-and perhaps even read.
