How Literature Saved My Life by David Shields
How Literature Saved My Life

Essayist, April 5, 2013

I was not sure at first that I was getting what David Shields has to say, but not because I don't love literature or the lyric or the new essay. I do. Still, it took me a little while to realize that he was saying truths I know, and I hope that readers will give this book a chance.
