For Anthony Rudolf, reading is a profoundly serious and intense activity, as well as a major source of pleasure and solace. At the same time, it is always interrupted by day jobs, friendships, politics, and, paradoxically, by the act of writing. All of this comes together in "Silent Conversations: A Reader's Life", a canny and insightful memoir of Rudolf's life in books.
