Un article en anglais dans le Guardian de Neil Gaiman sur l'importance de la lecture au sens large. Il y a une petite réflexion notamment sur la fiction.
If you were trapped in an impossible situation, in an unpleasant place, with people who meant you ill, and someone offered you a temporary escape, why wouldn't you take it? And escapist fiction is just that: fiction that opens a door, shows the sunlight outside, gives you a place to go where you are in control, are with people you want to be with(and books are real places, make no mistake about that); and more importantly, during your escape, books can also give you knowledge about the world and your predicament, give you weapons, give you armour: real things you can take back into your prison. Skills and knowledge and tools you can use to escape for real.
La réalité, c'est ce qui continue d'exister quand on cesse d'y croire - Philip K. Dick
