This Blog is about the love of books and the lack of time to read them all. The title is a homage to the Russian writer Yury Dombrovsky’s novel “The Faculty of Useless Knowledge”, a novel that shows the immortal value of art and creativity.
“We can forgive a man for making a useful thing as long as he does not admire it. The only excuse for making a useless thing is that one admires it intensely. All art is quite useless.”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray
