Album Notes
What should you be reading this summer—and how should you be reading it? We’re often told that fiction offers us entertainment, moral examples, and lessons about life. But are we getting too quick to dismiss complicated fiction—the kind that doesn’t have straightforward heroes and happy endings? Josh and Ken talk to writers and philosophers about reading and misreading for your summer pleasure.

• Maryanne Wolf from UCLA on the neuroscience of (mis)reading
• Thomas Pavel from the University of Chicago on the role of genre in (mis)reading
• Antonia Peacocke from Stanford University on "reader's block" and other reading mishaps
