Summary
Alberto Manguel confronts some of the problems we face in creating new societies and suggests a fresh approach: We should look at what writers and storytellers have to say. Maybe our books and stories hold secret keys to the human heart, keys that social planners can't find. Manguel suggests that perhaps we should look on the library shelf marked 'fiction' for the book entitled How to build a better society
