Mikita Brottman, author of The Solitary Vice: Against Reading on The Sound of Young America


Mikita Brottman is the author of "The Solitary Vice: Against Reading." She argues that reading isn't the unalloyed good it's been presented as over the past hundred years. In fact, she says it can be dangerously anti-social. Brottman holds a Ph.D in English Literature from Oxford University, and is currently anticipating a Ph.D in Psychoanalysis from Heed University. She's currently the chair of the M.A. program in Engaged Humanities at the Pacific Graduate Institute.
