Jacques Toubon, French Delegate for the Taxation of Cultural Goods and Services, for the “Get Caught Reading” campaign
Why did I pick this book and what is the role reading plays in my life? Well, because it resolves the question of writing at the risk of losing one’s life – that’s what happened to Primo Levi – or not writing anymore, to be able to live again. So, the book is not just a hobby, a device for knowledge or for imagination; it can govern the existence of the one who writes it or the one who reads it. Hence, it is just as essential for the individual as for society, says Mr Jacques Toubon, French Delegate for the Taxation of Cultural Goods and Services.
