Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the national bestseller, "How Reading Changed My Life", Anna Quindlen writes, "There was waking and there was sleeping. And then there were books". Quindlen is not alone in her passion for books. Here she explores what many of us feel (but may not be able to articulate quite as beautifully): The power of great literature to take us on adventures far from our everyday lives, to bring people into our homes we wouldn't ordinarily meet, and to comfort, inspire, educate, and delight us. Everyone who loves to read will want to share Quindlen's warm-hearted musings.

Synopsis:

Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist and bestselling author Anna Quindlen uses the mastery of the medium in which she works to send an utterly compelling message as she explores the importance of books in her life and their vital role in society.

Synopsis:

THE LIBRARY OF CONTEMPORARY THOUGHT is a groundbreaking series where America's finest writers and most brilliant minds tackle today's most provocative, fascinating, and relevant issues. Striking and daring, creative and important, these original voices on matters political, social, economic, and cultural, will enlighten, comfort, entertain, enrage, and ignite healthy debate across the country.
