The Art of Reading. Cruising.


"Of course, reading is also a form of cruising, of looking for heady pleasure in the vapour arising from the words. It may be covertly done under a mask of solitude and scorn...to read, study, write, dream or scheme later; these activities give order to events, give cruising a temporality, for without them everyone would be reduced to a sordid mixture of physical desire, tedium and pain."

Jose Luis de Juan, This Breathing World.
