She grew up in the countryside, but has aimed for the world of culture, believing that anything is possible there. She is convinced that if she can only keep her mouth shut long enough, shut up about all the things she observes and just adjust to the strange conventions, ways of speaking and alliances, something good will come out of it on the other side.
But now she is broke. Or is she just entering a perfectly normal life crisis? She is uncertain. Is it really possible to come from without and find your place on the inside? And how will she handle the fact that a marketing executive in one of the country’s largest publishing houses has started hoping that she is the one who will save him from his disillusion?
Good Readers is a desperate account from the inside of the literary field. It is a vigorous, absorbing story about being both on the outside and the inside, and about not losing yourself in a culture that is changing.
