Summary
This "little history" takes on a very big subject: the glorious span of literature from Greek myth to graphic novels, from The epic of Gilgamesh to Harry Potter. The author guides readers on an entertaining journey "through the wardrobe" to a greater awareness of how literature from across the world can transport us and help us to make sense of what it means to be human
