'Beröringens ABC'' är en essä om rösten i litteraturen: den tysta stämma som gör sig påmind vid läsningen och säger oss hur det skrivna är menat.

Despite his better judgment, he does not lie. “I. J. Lieber,” he says at length. “I. J. ” Hyams is astonished. ” After a pause, Abrams nods again. Hyams narrows his eyes. Following a few seconds’ hard appraisal, his face broadens with recognition. “Oh sure,” he exclaims, “there you go, I see it now. It’s in the eyes. Same challenge.
