I mean something a little more connective still: that the act of reading great writing lands and lives where the cerebral mixes with the emotional and becomes, if constantly nurtured, almost tribal, feeding a fealty that a sports fan would recognize. It’s the only way I’ve ever read magazines – madly, loyally, almost monogamously – scouring many but devouring the ones that deserve my madness.
